Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  It's another glorious Spring day, although not quite as much warmth as some of you may be enjoying.  Things are starting to emerge in the garden (mostly weeds in my case) and so it seems very appropriate to be announcing the winners from our Green challenge!

In the Spotlight this week we have a fabulous interpretation of the challenge theme:

Well done, #60 Carole of Brum!  Your colouring on this wonderful card is just fantastic!  Please take our Spotlight blinkie (go to the "Badges" tab above) for your blog!

Our weekly winner this week will receive goodies from our lovely sponsor The Emerald Fairie Garden.  And lucky winner is...

#48 Tracy B!  Congratulations!

We have another prize to give away today as we're having to do a redraw for the $10 Stamp Fairy voucher, which was unclaimed.

Congratulations go to #21 Shirley! Tracy and Shirley, if you contact Abi and Fi via the email link in the sidebar they will arrange for you to receive your prizes.

Well this week's challenge is everybody's favourite - Anything Goes!  You can make anything you like, in any colour, on any theme, but please remember, you must stamp if you want to be eligible for a prize!

Enjoy the sunshine and Happy Stampin'!

Let's see those Layers...

Good morning sweet stampers and what horrible weather we have been having....Wednesday here in Scotland we had all four seasons in the one day would you believe and today it's very wet and blustery so a day for get that mojo out and join in with our challenge this week. Our challenge this week if you've not guessed already it "lots of layers" and remember to include something on your project that has been stamped. We thought we would make it easy for you to join in with our challenge as layers are not everybodys thing so the lovely Janneke created this sketch specially to fit in with the challenge this's a fab sketch. Now you don't have to use the sketch but if you feel it will help with your layers then feel free to use it.

Our sponsor this week is very special because if it wasn't for her then Sweet Stampin' wouldn't be here today. Emma was the founder of Sweet Stampin' back in 2009 but has since hung up her boots to concentrate on her business Sew have to check out her website as she the most wonderful collection of buttons, ribbon, twine etc...

Emma is kindly giving one lucky winner a £10 voucher for her store.


We also have The Stamp Fairy sponsoring us as an added bonus this week...

..who are offering one lucky winner a$10 certificate


We also have the wonderful Joanna Sheen our monthly sponsor...

...who is offering one lucky winner picked at random this month, a £10 voucher for her store.
