Spotlight and Weekly Winner


Good morning Sweet Stampers! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. Did you watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics?  I suppose the upside of not having the best weather here is that I can stay inside to watch the swimming!

We had some fabulous entries in our Monochrome challenge last week but the one that I kept going back to was this one:



I love the simplicity of the design and the colouring is so beautifully done. Well done #6 Eva Wikberg - we'd love you to take our blinkie for your blog!

And now for our prize draw.  For this challenge we were sponsored by Emerald Faeries who are giving the lucky winner 2 of their fabulous digis.



Congratulations #8 Rene! Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar and they will give you the info you need to claim your prize.

We have a new challenge up and running already. It's Christmas this week - no, don't panic, it's not the actual celebration, just our Christmas in July challenge!  So let's see all that Christmas glitter, and bling, sparkle and snow. You could win a prize from Di's Digi Downloads who are sponsoring this challenge and don't forget, the lovely Joanna Sheen also gives away a £10 voucher to one randomly chosen winner each month.

I'm hoping to spend my time watching the Olympics and making a start on my Christmas cards if the weather doesn't improve.  If it does, then I've got some serious weeding to do!

Whatever you're doing, have a fabulous week and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers! I'm back from my travels and although it's always nice to get home, I must say that Barcelona was amazing.  I want to give a big thank you to the gorgeousness that is Fi for standing in for me last week while the Boy Wonder and I were soaking up the sun and enjoying some Spanish culture!

It's another grey day over at Sweet Stampin' Towers (Scottish Division) so I do hope it's brighter and warmer wherever you are.  Do you have Olympic Fever yet?  Well you are certainly a patriotic group of stampers - we  really enjoyed looking at your national flag-inspired creations last week.

There was naturally a lot of red, white and blue but this one with a Parisian flavour caught my eye.



Well done, #13 Shelley.  This is a fabulous, fun card! Please take our blinkie to display on your blog - it's very well deserved!

Now for  our randomly chosen weekly prize, which this week is Letraset




who are giving away a set of Promarkers.
And our lucky winner is...


Yes, #1 that's you Antonella (Birthday card and freebie)! Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar to claim your lovely prize.

A new challenge is already underway.  We're looking for monochromatic creations this week. As my lovely teamie Wedgie puts it, "choose one colour and stick with it!". And remember, you can make pretty much anything you like as long as you remember to stamp (rubber or digi, we don't mind).  As usual we have some yummy prizes up for grabs: a £10 voucher for our monthly prize winner courtesy of Joanna Sheen and 2 digis from Emerald Faeries in this week's prize draw.

Wishing you all a fun-filled, sun-filled week! Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight, Weekly and Monthly Winners!

Good morning Sweet Stampers! I hope you are all safe, warm and dry; I feel so sorry for all of those people who have been affected by the horrendous weather we are experiening in the UK right now. 

We had a terrific response to our Scallops challenge and as such it wasn't easy to choose just one entry to be in our Spotlight. In fact, I think I visited every entry twice before I could make up my mind!

Maybe it's because I'm looking forward to my holidays; perhaps it's because of the rotten weather here in the UK, but mostly it's the sheer gorgeousness of this cute creation that made me choose this card to be in our Spotlight this week...



Well done #26 Marie Therese! This really is the cutest card! Please take our Spotlight Winners' blinkie for your blog and display it with pride!

Now for our randomly chosen winners; there are two this week as we have our weekly prize and our monthly prize to give away.

First up, the weekly winner, who will receive 3 digi's from Crafts and Me.  Mr Random reported for duty and chose



#2 Pauline!  Congratulations!


And now our monthly winner, chosen randomly from all of our entries in the month of June.  Who will be the lucky winner of a £10 from the fabulousness that is Joanna Sheen?



Yes, it's you, #32 Hazel (from our Stitching challenge)!

Ladies, please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar and they will tell you how to claim your prizes.

As always, we have a new challenge for you this week.  We'd like to see your take on Paper Piecing! You can make anything you like, as long as you remember to STAMP!  This week we have Bunny Zoe's Crafts as our sponsor and once again, the yummy Joanna Sheen is giving away a prize to one lucky winner drawn from all of the entries in July.

I'm off on my hols, so the lovely Abi and Fi will be on prize giving duty next week.  Have a wonderful week, Sweet Stampers and Happy Stampin'!
