Spotlight and Weekly Winner - Babies & Little Ones

Good morning Sweet Stampers! Hope you've all had a wonderful week, wherever you are and whatever you've been up to.  It's been another busy one here at Sweet Stampin' Towers and we've really enjoyed looking at your baby/little one-themed creations this week.

Today the Spotlight falls on #35 Carolyn, who made this sweet card! I just love this sleepy little cutie!

Well done and thank you for sharing this lovely card with us, Carolyn - please take our Spotlight blinkie for your blog.

And now for our winner of this week's prize, 7 digis from the fabby Bugaboo stamps! Mr Random did his thing and chose ...

# 15 Sally M.  This is providence indeed, as Sally's card was also in my Top 3 when I was choosing our Spotlight winner.  Well done, Sally - please contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar and they will let you know how to claim your digis!

Our challenge this week is one dear to my heart as it contains some of my favourite things - strawberries and chocolate (the challenge includes cream, too, but I can take or leave that on my strawbs!).  The Team Fi Sweeties have excelled themselves this week with their lovely creations and we can't wait to see what you, our lovely Sweet Stampers make!

Have a fabulous week and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner - On the Farm

Good morning Sweet Stampers! I hope you've all had a good week - my son and I had  couple of days away in York and had a fantastic time, although I'll be calorie counting for a while as I over-indulged a bit!
A city break is a real treat for us as we live in the middle of nowhere, surrounded mostly by sheep and cows.  And just in case I was feeling homesick, I had your lovely "On the Farm" entries to look at!

Entries this week ranged from the cute to the funny so it was quite difficult to pick an overall winner to be in the Spotlight.  However, I chose this one because of its sweet image (called "Custard") and gorgeous blue/brown colour combo.

So well done #1 Wishcraft - you're in the Spotlight this week! Please take our Spotlight winner's blinkie for your blog.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Prairie Fairy and we're delighted that they are kindly offering our randomly chosen winner 5 digis from their online store.  And the lucky number is ...

#21 Lorraine's Loft!  Congratulations - please contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar and they will explain how to claim your prize.

Thank you all so much for your stunning entries - it's amazing just how much variety we see in each challenge and the Sweeties love visiting you each week.

And now for this week's challenge - something with the "Aah" factor!  Yes, it's babies or little ones and we had great fun using the cute images provided by our sponsor, Bugaboo.  You could win 7 Bugaboo digis if Mr Random chooses you next Sunday!   I must admit, I do like our Sweetie Dora's image of the baby with the bare bum!

Well, it's almost the end of the summer holidays for me as it's back to school on Wednesday.  I wonder how many cards I can make before then...?

Have a wonderful week everyone and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  It's that time of the week when we announce the winner of our last challenge and see who's in the Spotlight!

Our challenge theme was "Rainbows" and you had the choice of using a rainbow image or just using the colours of the rainbow.  It was great visiting you all and seeing all those bright and cheerful colours - just what we need at the moment!

The gorgeous colours in our Spotlight card really stood out for me this week, so well done #7 peggysue W!

Grab our Spotlight blinkie, Peggy and display it with pride!

And now for this week's prize winner as chosen by Mr Random!  Our sponsor  Tiffany Doodles is giving away digis of your choice to ... # 11 Cat's Scrap

Congratulations! Please use the link in the sidebar to contact Abi and Fi and they will let you know how to claim your prize.

This week's challenge is "Down on the Farm".  And if, like me, you live in a rural area, you'll know the delights of not just seeing, but SMELLING the lovely farm animals.  So let's see all of those farm-related images - digi or inked, as long as they are stamps, that's fine - and you could be in the Spotlight next week.

Have a fabby week, Sweet Stampers and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner - Christmas in July

Good morning Sweet Stampers! Once again it's time to announce our weekly winners for our Christmas in July challenge - given the weather some of us have been having you could be forgiven for thinking that it's Christmas already!

We've had a great time at Sweet Stampin' Towers this week looking at all of the lovely entries and it took me quite a while to make a final decision on the Spotlight winner for this week.  After much deliberation I chose #7 Chris V - Easily Amused and her lovely creation; wonderful colours on this one and so much attention to detail. 

Well done, Chris - help yourself to our Spotlight blinkie!

Tiddly Inks, our sponsor for the Christmas in July Challenge, is kindly giving our randomly chosen winner a $10 voucher for their online shop.  And the lucky winner is ...

#10 Claire M!  Congratulations!  Just contact Abi and Fi to claim your prize.

We also have redraws for unclaimed prizes from previous weeks.

First up is the Fashion challenge prize which is 5 digis from the Stamping Boutique.  Mr Random chose #44 Susan's Crafty Chaos.  Then we have a redraw for our One for the Boys challenge; the winner receives 5 digis from  Fairy Dust Crafts.  Mr Random chose #103 Hazel P.  Congratulations ladies - please contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar and they will tell you how to claim your prizes.

Are you ready for this week's challenge, Sweet Stampers?  I can't get the old song out of my head - "Red and yellow and pink and green, orange and purple and blue" etc etc.  For those of you who aren't as old as me, that's one of Cilla Black's finest (did somebody say "Who?"?!).  We're looking for rainbows this week - either rainbow images or rainbow colours, we don't mind!

Have a wonderful week everyone and Happy Stampin'!

(Somewhere over the) Rainbow....

Yep, pull on  those glitzy red shoes, it's time to dance down the yellow brick road, check out those orange flowers nestled in the green grass, admire the blue skies and erm....I can't come up with anything flowing & poetic for indigo & violet but hopefully you get the picture anyway....Carlyann has chosen the theme of RAINBOWS this week.  It doesn't matter if you use an actual rainbow or all the colours of the rainbow on your creation we know we're going to get some fantastic colourful creations!!

We're sponsored this week by the fabulous Tiffany Doodles & the girls have showcased a couple of her images on their cards, but I highly recommend you pop over for a look around, Tiffany has some great new releases including Sea Critters, fab!

Now for some inspiration....First though I'd like to say a huge thanks to Steph for designing with us through July, didn't she do us proud?  And I'm delighted to introduce you to our August guest designer: Heather with this beautiful card:


Fi (you just can't keep a good woman down!)


We can't wait to see your rainbow creations & thank you to those of you who leave such lovely comments each week, it's so appreciated.  We love to know you're enjoying our challenges.  Have a great week!!
