Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  Are you feeling festive?  I really enjoy the couple of days before The Big One.  The last posting date is past, the presents are wrapped, the tree is decorated and the food shopping is done. In other words, all of the things which can make me slightly grumpy are dealt with and I can relax a wee bit before I start cooking the Christmas Dinner.

So who is in our Spotlight this week?  We wanted to see Santa in your creations and I love the way we get to see Santa in this one!



Well done #24 Anu! This is a fabulous Christmas card.  Please  help yourself to our Spotlight Winner's blinkie and display it on  your blog with pride!

The weekly prize draw for this challenge is sponsored by A Day for Daisies who are giving the lucky winner a $12 voucher for their online store.  Who will it be?


Congratulations!  Please contact Abi and Fi via the link in the sidebar to claim your prize.

Our latest challenge started yesterday and we're Seeing Double!  We like you to use two of something - stamps, ribbons, embellies - anything you like.  To be eligible for the prize draw, though, you must remember to use a stamp (rubber or digi).  We've got fabby sponsors again: Letraset are giving away a set of Promarkers and Joanna Sheen is once again sponsoring our monthly draw with a £10 voucher for her online shop.

We hope you can find some crafting time over the holiday season and join in our challenge.  Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winners

Good morning Sweet Stampers! December is here and that means the big countdown to Christmas! I think we crafters tend to fall into two camps: those who are totally organised, prepared and efficient and those who are now panicking at the thought of the number of cards we're going to have to make in a very short space of time!  Notice I said "we"?  No prizes for guessing which camp I'm in!

There are weekly and monthly winners to announce today, so I'll cut the waffle and get to the point.  We had another batch of gorgeous entries for our Flowers challenge last week but this one really stood out for me:



I love those rolled roses!  Congratulations #18 Dreamlaine!   This is such a gorgeous and cheery card!  Please take our Spotlight blinkie for your blog and display it with pride.

Now for our weekly winner, who will be receiving some lovely digis from our sponsor



The lucky winner is...




Now for our monthly prize draw for a £10 voucher for Joanna Sheen's fabulous online store. 




Mr Random did his thing again (although he's a bit camera-shy today!) and chose  #457!  A bit of mental maths, then giving up and resorting to a calculator...  that means our November winner is

#3 Claire Day (from last week's Flowers challenge)!

Normally this is the bit where I tell you about our new challenge but we have even more prizes to give away!  As it was our 3rd birthday, we had some candy on offer and now's the time to find out who has won.  So, for the Letraset Promarkers




Mr Random chose



and for the Funky Kits stamps




Mr Random picked out


Congratulations to all of our prize winners!  Please contact Abi and Fi (email link is in the sidebar) to claim your prizes.

Before I go, I need to remind you that our current challenge, which runs until Friday, is Snowflakes and Ribbons.  We're sponsored by Stamp Fairy this week




and we've also got our monthly sponsor,


giving away another £10 voucher at the end of the month.

That was a long post - thank you for sticking with me! I think we've earned a cuppa now, don't you? Hope you can join in with our challenge this week!  Happy Stampin'!
