Spotlight & Prize Winner

Well, I hope you've all remembered to turn your clocks forward.....I don't know about you but I always do mine the night before, that way I don't notice the missing hour so much!  Anyway I won't ramble, I know you're here to see whose card is in the spotlight this week from all your wonderful entries, it's certainly given me lots of inspiration for my boys cards (not to mention discovering a whole host of stamps/images I 'must have').  I'm delighted to say it's you.....

Hazel (Dido's) with this adorable card.

Congratulations Hazel, grab the Spotlight blinkie from the sidebar & display with pride

And of course Sunday morning would not be complete without finding out who is the lucky prize winner of the 5 images from Whimsy Stamps......

Mr Random decided on #10 - Carlie M!

Now, the reason I'm showing you Carlie's card is because she is only 12 & look at this fabulous creation, seriously, her colouring is way better than mine!!  Now doesn't that deserve a special mention?  Keep up the amazing work hon & congratulations, if you contact Carrie using the address in the sidebar, she will organise getting your prize.

We're looking forward to seeing all your weather related cards this week, & don't forget we're running a competition to pick the theme for a challenge & you get to be a guest designer too.  Check here for the details, leave your ideas & challenge the DT!

Slugs, snails and puppy dog tails!

Morning Sweet Stampers! I've been on holiday this week and now have a mountain of washing!

The amount of washing a holiday generates always amazes me. We never would have got through that amount of clothing if we'd been at home.

And we spent a massive portion of the week in a swimming pool! How is it possible?!

Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time to play along with our Fabourite Movie Challenge. Carrie's been walking around shouting 'No one puts Baby in the corner!' all week! As always, we loved coming to see your wonderful creations.

This week, Lindsey has chosen:

Slugs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Nuff said I reckon! You have until 10pm, GMT, Friday 25 March to play along.

This week we are lucky enough to be joined by:

Whimsy Stamps are offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, 5 images of their choice.

And we also have our monthly sponsor:

Happy Birthday Jo!

Wanna get your mitts on this delish stash, you'll need to play along with our sketch this week! You can flip it, you can rotate it, you can even put a flower where a sentiment should be. We don't care, so long as we can recognise the basic elements of the sketch, we'll be cool.

Here's what the Sweeties have made this week:









Don't forget to pop back tomorrow morning to find out if you've won stash or to see where the Spotlight has fallen! In the meantime, have a great weekend...
