Spotlight and Weekly Winner

 
Good Morning Sweet Stampers!  As I type this, the sun is streaming through the window and I'm looking out at a beautiful, but very chilly day.  What a change from our recent weather!  A few weeks ago I took down a very untidy-looking hanging basket which had suffered badly in the persistent rain.  Today I went to see if I could save any of the plants in there, only to find the basket is now full of frog spawn!  My sweet peas, dahlias and cosmos, which haven't flowered all summer, are now all trying to flower - the seasons really are very mixed up this year!

Our Through the Window challenge last week seems to have been a toughie so we didn't have our usual number of entries. However, there were some gorgeous designs and this one in particular really stood out for me:



I love the pretty pastel colours and the diecut window - well done, #3 Lea L!  Please take our Spotlight Winner's Blinkie for your lovely blog.

Our sponsor for this challenge is



who are giving away a £10 voucher for their online store.  Our winner, chosen by Mr Random is




#15 Cathy! Congratulations! Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the sidebar.

Our latest challenge started yesterday and has the theme of Autumn Leaves and/or Trees so we'd like to see leaves and/or trees on your designs, please!  And don't forget, you need to use a stamp (rubber or digi) on your entry in order to be eligible for a prize.  As always, we are so lucky to have Joanna Sheen as our monthly sponsor and this particular challenge is sponsored by Lili of the Valley, so that's two more great reasons to play along this week!

Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight, Weekly and monthly winners

Good morning Sweet Stampers! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and managing to find some time to craft. We seem to be well and truly into Autumn here and that just happens to be my favourite time of year - I love those crisp, sunny days when you can get all wrapped up and go for a long walk. I rather like the hot chocolate when you get home, too!

Last week's challenge theme was Vintage and there were lots of interesting interpretations of this, which made it even more tricky than usual for me to pick a Spotlight winner. I kept going back to this one, because it is just so gorgeous and fits our theme beautifully:

Fabulous, isn't it? I just love the embossed flower against the vintage paper and lace. Well done, #47 Linda! Please take our blinkie for your blog.

Now it's time for Mr Random to do his stuff and choose our weekly and monthly winners. Let's take the weekly winner first; we were sponsored by




and a surprise package will shortly be on its way to


#24 Shirley!

We are, as ever, hugely grateful to the lovely Joanna Sheen who donates a £10 voucher each month for us to give to our monthly winner. The lucky person for the month of September is (pause to lick end of pencil)


#27 Lindsay from our Charming challenge!

Congratulations, ladies! Please contact Abi and Fi using the email link in the side bar to claim your prizes.

Our Through the Window challenge started yesterday and we are really looking forward to seeing your take on this. Remember, in order to be eligible for a prize, you must use a stamp (rubber or digi, we don't mind)!

Have a fabulous week, everyone and Happy Stampin'!

Vintage

Are you ready for another challenge at Sweet Stampin'?  We had a little confusion last week with some peeps not reading the theme properly so sadly some of the beautiful cards have had to be disqualified & we don't like doing that.  So this week, let's see something VINTAGE, and don't forget the something stamped on your card!

This week we're sponsored by

There'll be a picture of the prize to follow asap!

we also have our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen...
