Spotlight and Weekly Winner - F-F-F-Fashion!

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  Hope you have all had a good week and that those of you with children haven't heard the dreaded "I'm bored" yet!

So who's in the Spotlight this week? Well, I've chosen this absolute beauty for its fabulous image, gorgeous colours and clever design. It's a joy-fold card - something I haven't made yet, but I'm going to have to give it a go.

Well done, Donna (#24) - it's a stunner!  Please grab our Spotlight blinkie for your blog and display it with pride!

And now for our randomly chosen weekly winner. We were lucky enough to be sponsored by the Stamping Boutique for our Fashion challenge and the prize is 5 lovely digis of your choice.  And the winner is ...

#9 Bella - congratulations! Please contact Abi and Fi using the link and they'll let you know how to claim your prize.

Finally, we have a redraw for last week's challenge as the prize of 5 digis from Fairy Dust Crafts
was unclaimed.  The lucky winner is ...

# 63 Jill.  Congratulations Jill!  Just contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar and they'll arrange for you to receive your digis.

Don't forget that we have a new challenge for you this week.  Yes, it's Christmas!!! Or at least, it's time to make a start on those cards!   If you're anything like me, you'll have a panic in November when you realise just how many cards you have still got to make!  So why not get ahead and make something for our Christmas in July challenge? We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a wonderful week and Happy Stampin'!
