Morning all, I hope this finds you all fit & well?  Anyone else noticed the fact that all it's done since the hosepipe ban in the U.K. is rain lol?!  Go figure!!  I had my OH at home to do the school run yesterday & it did that typical thing of raining just for the 20 mins you need to be out......I was so pleased to stay in, can't say OH was as happy as me though lol!!

So on to our new challenge: Use more than 1 ribbon, so as long as you've at least 2 ribbons on your card, you're in!  Now this isn't as tough as it sounds, check out our DT's wonderful examples below!!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers! As the Easter holidays come to an end here in the UK, I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering where the last 2 weeks went! I certainly didn't get half as much done as I'd planned!

I did, however, manage to pick a winner for our Spotlight award this week.  It was another busy week at Sweet Stampin' Towers with entries featuring die cuts or doodles or both! And I chose...


this one!  The arrangement of the die cuts on this card is fabulous, don't you think?  Well done #37 Donna BMC.  Please take our Spotlight blinkie for your blog.

And now for our randomly chosen winner.  This week we are sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop who are giving away a £10 voucher for their online shop. 



Congratulations # 13 Hilde Loch!  Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar and they will arrange for you to receive your voucher.

Our new challenge is a corker!  "Girlie but no pink"!  Quite a twist, eh? We can't wait to see the pretty-but-non-pink colour schemes you come up with!  And don't forget that there are prizes up for grabs from our monthly sponsor, Joanna Sheen, and this week's sponsor, Pollycraft.

Have a great week everyone and Happy Stampin'!

Dies & Doodles at Sweet Stampin'...

Good morning sweet stampers...how are we all this morning?? Before we get on to this weeks challenge, a big thanks to all who entered our challenge last week...a fab array of Easter and spring cards.

Next we have some news, unfortunately a couple of out girls have had to step down for personal reasons, Abi and I would just like to say a massive thanks to Cathy and Kozmik for all their hard work over the past months, you will be sadly missed and big hugs to you both...which also means some good news too for out 2 new team members. As we had lots of applicants at our last DT call we decided to ask a couple of the girls who had applied and I am delighted to say they accepted, so first we have Helen who is joining Team Fi and her first card is below and secondly we have Mickaela who is joining Team Abi and will show her first card next week. last but not least I will also mention that Susan has jumped ship and moved from Team Abi to Team Fi....this was to help accommodate our newbies...so thanks Susan you're a star!!

So..this weeks challenge is "dies & doodles" now we will accept dies on their own or doodles on their own but we would love to see them both together and how you interpret the doodles is entirely up to you...you can some lines around the edges or you can add some additional lines to the image on you card.

Our sponsor this week is My Mum's Craft Shop....



....who is giving one lucky winner picked at random a £10 voucher to spend at their store.


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



....who is also giving a £10 voucher to spend at their store.

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers and Happy Easter to you all!  I do hope you're enjoying a happy and peaceful long weekend.

We had a huge number of entries again last week and your Spring/Easter themed cards gave us a good idea of what it should be like when we look out of the window!

It's always difficult to pick just one winner for the Spotlight when we have so many creations to choose from. There were 2  that the Sweeties thought were particularly fabulous, so it's only fair that we have joint Spotlight winners this week!    I kept going back to this one...


Each time I look at this,  I find something new among all of those stunning details! Well done, #56 Jenny - this really is a work of art! 

And now for something completely different for our second joint Spotlight winner! 




The work (not to mention patience) that has gone into the creation of these adorable stamped eggs is amazing! And yes, they are REAL eggs! Well done,   #130 Dawn!  Ladies, please take our Spotlight blinkie for your lovely blogs - you'll find it under the badges tab at the top of the page.

Our randomly chosen winner this week will receive



a £10 voucher from Lili of the Valley.  Great timing for this one, as they've just released a new batch of yummy stamps and some are quite different from their usual style!

We asked Mr Random to choose and he picked...



#79 Netty. Congratulations!

We also need to do the draw for the monthly prize - a £10 voucher from our fabby sponsor, the loveliness that is Joanna Sheen.



My calculations make that Viv from the Anything Goes challenge!  Netty and Viv, please contact Abi and Fi via the email link in the sidebar to claim your prizes.
And now for our latest challenge: Dies and Doodles.  You can just use die cuts or doodles if you want, but we'd really love to see you use both! Our sponsor is My Mum's Craft Shop who will be giving one randomly chosen winner a £10 voucher for their online shop.  And of course, we have our monthly sponsor, Joanna Sheen, who will give away a £10 voucher to another winner randomly chosen from all of the entries this month.

Enjoy the long Easter weekend everyone and Happy Stampin'!
