Spotlight and Winner - Things with Wings Plus Prize Re-draw

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  Where's this heatwave then?  Have you got it - 'cos I haven't!  Well, whatever the weather you certainly pulled out all the stops last week and kept the Sweeties very busy admiring your fantabulous creations! 

You know when you're blog hopping and you see something that makes you go "Wow!"?  Well, there were a good number of entries this week which had that effect on me and the Spotlight this week is falling on a creation which certainly has the wow factor.  I always admire attention to detail and this, I know you'll agree, has been so beautifully made. 

Many congratulations #29 Kurlygirl - your book box is absolutely stunning! Please take our blinkie for your blog!

And now for our winner of 5 fabby digis from Pollycraft ...

Pollycraft Designs

Mr Random had his work cut out this week but he did what he does best and chose...

#93 Juelmarie!  Please use the link in the sidebar Juelmarie and contact Abi and Fi to claim your prize. Enjoy your digis!

And finally we're redrawing the In the Garden and/or Sketch challenge prize (again), quite simply because the digis from Heather Ellis are just too good to miss.

I put Mr Random through his paces again and he chose #12 SueU

Well done, Sue - just use the link in the sidebar to contact Abi and Fi at Sweet Stampin' Towers and they'll let you know how to get your digis!

I think I need a lie down in a darkened room after all that!  Do try and join us again this week at Sweet Stampin' - let's see what you've been buying lately in our "Something Old, Something New" challenge"!  And as next week will be the end of (another) month there will be prizes from Bugaboo and Prairie Fairy for 2 lucky winners.

Have a fabby week everyone, enjoy the tennis (please let it be Andy Murray's year!) and hopefully some sunshine.  And, of course, Happy Stamping!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner - Playing in the Summer Sun

Hello Sweet Stampers! Hope you're all having a great weekend and seeing some sunshine, especially as today's the day for announcing our winners for the Playing in the Summer Sun theme!

So many of you joined in this week and it was wonderful to visit you all.  I'm always amazed at how varied the entries are and this week was no exception.  I have managed to pick a Spotlight winner although I must admit it was almost a tie between two cards which had both been beautifully made.  In the end I decided on this one because I felt the challenge theme was instantly recognisable.  So many congratulations to...

#99 Wendy Ramlakhan.  I love your card, Wendy - many congratulations on being in the Spotlight this week!

And so to our weekly winner, who will receive a £10 voucher from Lili of the Valley.  What excellent timing this is, as they are releasing their new girlie stamps on 14th June.  I can feel a little spend coming on...

Well, I asked Mr Random to choose me a winner and he found

#13 Kleeblatt (Monika). Use the link in the sidebar to contact Abi and Fi to claim your fabby prize!

Prizes must be claimed by this coming Friday 9pm (GMT) or a new winner will be drawn, thanks.

Now, I'm a self-confessed greedy girl and I can't wait to visit you all to see your take on our Food Glorious Food challenge.  We've got more lovely prizes on offer - this week's sponsor is Bunny Zoe, who has a £10 voucher to give away and our monthly sponsor for June is Prairie Fairy, who has 5 digis for one randomly selected winner. 

Do join us if you can - try not to make my tummy rumble too much!  Have a wonderful week everyone and Happy Stamping!

Spotlight, Weekly and Monthly Winners!

Well Sweet Stampers, it's time to announce our winners for this week and for the month of May.  First, our Spotlight winner.  I must admit, I was a bit worried at first that my Ooh La La idea might not have been the easiest challenge to follow.  But when I saw what you guys had created ...  There were some really gorgeous designs and as always, it was a pleasure to visit you all.  One card in particular stood out for me this week and I'm sure you'll agree, not only is it fabulously made, it fits the challenge theme perfectly.

 Congratulations Jayne and thank you for sharing your stunning card with us!  Please grab the Spotlight winner's blinkie (now to be found on the badges page at the top of the blog) and display it with pride!

Now for our weekly winner.  Mr Random chose

and that's #12. Carrie on Crafting!  Well done - you're the winner of a £10 voucher to spend at Quixotic Paperie, our fabulous sponsor for this challenge. Please use the link in the sidebar to contact Abi & Fi and claim your prize.

And now, last but by no means least, our winner for the month of May.  Our monthly sponsor this time was the brilliant  Joanna Sheen who's also offering a £10 voucher for her online store.  I used Mr Random and a bit of O level maths and calculate that our May winner is ...

#36. Anne!  Congratulations - enjoy your spending spree! Just contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar.

Our new challenge is "Playin' in the Summer Sun" and hopefully the recent lovely weather and the fabby cards our Team Fi Sweeties have made have inspired you to get out those summery stamps and start creating!  Our weekly sponsor is Lily of the Valley & they're offering a £10 voucher.  Our new monthly sponsor  is Prairie Fairy and one randomly chosen winner will receive 5 digis of their choice from an amazing selection.

Hope you'll be able to join us this week.  Whatever you're up to, have a good one and Happy Stamping!

Playing in the Summer Sun

Saturday again & for some of us, half term is almost over, just remember U.K. Mums, next time they break up it's for 7 weeks!! Can you believe that's come round already? So to get you thinking ahead & in the mood for the sunny weather this week's theme is 'Playing in the Summer sun' chosen by our competition winner Jani.

This week's sponsor is a new one for us, Lily of the Valley & they're offering a £10 voucher. Now I must be the last person on earth to discover LOTV but oh aren't they fab! Several of the team have used their images this week.

Our super sponsor for the month of June is Prairie Fairy who have a great range of digi stamps, some of which we'll be showcasing for you over the rest of the month so keep an eye out! The lovely Roberta is offering the winner 5 images of their choice.

Prairie Fairy

Thanks to both our fabulous sponsors, your generosity is much appreciated. Right on to the DT inspiration for this week & our new Team Fi have been working their socks off!
