Ribbons & bows

Morning, what an appropriate theme we have for you this week, I've definitely had some moments this week that feel like they were ribbon wrapped & tied up with a bow...in other words very special! I got to meet my very lovely teamie Wedgie & was on the receiving end of an amazing act of kindness from a complete stranger.

So get out your ribbons for this week's Ribbons & Bows challenge.  We're sponsored by Crafty Ribbons..



with this fabulous Keep Calm.... ribbon.



And Joanna Sheen, our monthly sponsor is giving one lucky winner a £10 voucher for her online store.


Think of all the ribbon you could buy with that!!

Here's your weekly dose of inspiration from the talented team Abi, starting with our June teamie,

Sarah:





Abi




Doreen



Jenny - Now the eagle eyed will spot that Jenny has no bow!! You need to have a bow on your creation or you'll end up on the naughty step with Jenny lol!!! Seriously though, we couldn't be too cross as it's a wonderful card.



Kim




Can't wait to see your ribbons & bows creations, hope you all have a wonderful week.

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers! It's Sunday, so it must be time to announce our Spotlight and prize winners this week.

Your entries last week were stunning! I have to admit to being very jealous of the neat stitching, real and faux, as I can never seem to stitch in a straight line! Fortunately the Sweeties were able to help me out in choosing our Spotlight winner, as I couldn't make my mind up on my own!

We opted for this fabulous, fun card...



Well, done #77 Michelle - I'm sure we all know people for whom this might be appropriate! Love the stitching, too!  You'll find our Spotlight winner's blinkie under the tab at the top of the page. We'd love you to put it on your blog!

And now for our randomly chosen prize winner.  For this challenge we were sponsored by the fabulous Sew Sweet



who are giving away a £10 voucher for their gorgeous online store.  Mr Random chose...




yes, #30 Debbie S, that's you!  Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar to claim your prize.

We have a brand new challenge for you this week. Its all about Summer Fun! We'd like to see creations on a summery theme (some of us in the UK will have to use our imaginations!) and as usual, we have great prizes on offer for our randomly chosen winners.  Stamp and Create are giving away a $20 voucher and we also have our monthly sponsor, Joanna Sheen, who gives a £10 store voucher each month.

Maybe if we get lots and lots of summery entries, it will actually start to feel as if summer has arrived!

Have a wonderful week, everyone and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and weekly winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  As I type this there are hints of something other than just grey above us in the UK! I do believe I can see a glimpse of blue sky, although what has happened to the big round yellow thing I do not know!

We had a terrific response to our "Favourite Stamp" challenge - thank you all so much for joining in.  How did you choose? I really couldn't have decided on just one stamp and  I'd be the same with papers too!

And on the subject of choosing a favourite, how do I choose the Spotlight winner each week?  Well, fortunately for me, the Sweeties are very good at letting me know their favourites.  I also have a few key things I look out for: has a stamp been used ('cos you have to stamp!);  the overall construction of the project and, really importantly, does the project fit our challenge theme?  Sometimes this helps me to narrow down the entries but sometimes it doesn't! I quite often end up wishing we could put you all in our Spotlight!

Our Spotlight winner this week is #44 Alyce who created this fabulous card



Your colouring of this gorgeous image is just amazing, Alyce.  Well done! Please take our Spotlight blinkie for your blog and display it with pride.

Now for our randomly chosen winner, who this week will receive a set of pens from Letraset!




Drumroll please...



That's you #97 Wendy F! Congratulations! To claim your prize, please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar.


We have a new challenge on the go now.  We'd like to see stitching - real or faux, we don't mind - on your creations this week.  It seems appropriate then that Sew Sweet are our sponsors and they are very kindly giving away a voucher for their fabby online store.



Don't forget, all of our entries each month are included in the monthly draw, the lucky winner of which will receive a £10 voucher for Joanna Sheen's online store.


Do join in with our Stitching challenge this week if you can - we can't wait to see what you make!

Have a fabby week and Happy Stampin'!
