Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!   What a week it's been!  So many people in the UK have been affected by the dreadful weather and floods in particular.  Wherever you are, I hope you are safe, warm and dry. 

There was a weather theme to last week's challenge, as we asked to see your take on Snow People.  It was fabulous to see your different interpretations of the theme but my goodness, it made it almost impossible for me to pick a winner.  I took the slightly easier way out and went for a Top 3 instead!

So here they are


 
 
 
 
 

 





Can you see now why I found it so hard to choose just one winner?  Aren't they gorgeous?

Now for our weekly winners.  We have two lots of prizes to give away this week: 7 digis from Bugaboo and 5 digis from Di's Digi Downloads - I think we might be spoiling you, but Sweet Stampers, you sure are worth it!

So who's won the Bugaboo digis?


That's #11 Anita M!


The Di's Digi's digis (!!!) will be going to ...




 #21 Archana!

Congratulations! Please contact Abi and Fi (link is in the sidebar) to claim your prizes.

Our challenge this week is Flower Power.  All you have to do is include flowers somewhere in your design and remember, in order to be eligible for a prize, you must use a stamp (rubber or digi, we don't mind).  We have more fabby prizes to give away - Emerald Faeries are our sponsor for this week and Joanna Sheen sponsors our monthly prize draw.

I do hope you can join in the fun with us this week. Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  Can you believe that it's already the second weekend in November?  Here in Scotland the few remaining leaves are clinging desperately to the trees, it's dark by half-past four and  Christmas adverts are starting to appear on TV! Where did the year go? 

Our All That Glitters challenge proved to be a big hit with you all.  Thank you so much for your beautiful entries.  Picking a winner for our Spotlight was a little tricky with so many stunning designs to choose from, but I thought you should all take a look at this one.






Isn't this just so pretty?  Well done, #12 Joyce!  What a stunning creation!

Now for our randomly chosen weekly winner.  This week's sponsor is our very own Sweetie Natali, who has generously donated a lush prize from her online shop





The lucky winner is....



#63 Ann-Marie S! Congratulations! Please contact Abi and Fi using the link in the sidebar to claim your prize.

It's a nice, easy challenge for you this week!  Yes, it's Anything Goes!  You can make anything you like, on any theme, but you must remember to STAMP if you want to be eligible for a prize.  And what prizes we have for you!  We have not one, but two sponsors next week, so that means two prizes for winners drawn at random!

 
Quixotic Paperie
   



We are delighted to have Quixotic Paperie sponsoring us - Elaine is giving away a £10 voucher for her online store.  And the Stamp Fairy (who kindly gave the DT digis to use) is giving away a store voucher to the value of $10!  How fab is that?  And, of course, the loveliness that is Joanna Sheen is once again sponsoring our monthly prize draw.

Lots of prizes and an Anything Goes challenge - now there is really no excuse not to join in!

Have a great week, Sweet Stampers and Happy Stampin'!
