Good morning Sweet Stampers! As I type this post, the sun is shining, the birds are making themselves busy in the hedges and I can see little green shoots as the snowdrops try to emerge. Those first signs of Spring being on it's way are always so welcome, aren't they?
Last week's Ribbon challenge was a huge hit! We had so many fabulous entries but of course that doesn't make life too easy for me when I have to pick a winner for our Spotlight feature!
In the end I chose this beauty:
Now that's what I call a bow! The composition of this card is really stunning, I think. Well done #121 Chris Olsen! Please take our Spotlight Winner's blinkie for your blog and display it with pride.
Time now to announce the winner of our weekly prize (a beautiful pack of ribbons), sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.
That's #157 Jane's Journal!
We also need Mr Random to choose the winner of our January prize draw. All of the month's entries have been added up and the randomly chosen winner of a £10 voucher from The Ribbon Girl is:
no. 161 from last week's Ribbon challenge, Susie!
Finally, I need to redraw the prize for the Show Us Your Frillies challenge, as this was unclaimed. So, the lucky winner of the Lili of the Valley voucher (and they have new stamps and papers out now!) is...
Congratulations, ladies! Please contact Abi and Fi to claim your prizes (there is a link in the sidebar but please leave a comment here also then we know to look out for your e.mail).
So now for a new month and a new challenge. This week's theme is Love Is All Around, but it doesn't have to be a Valentines card. We're sponsored by Cuddly Buddly this week and the Ribbon Girl are once again sponsoring our monthly prize.
Wishing you all a wonderful week and Happy Stampin'!
♥ Love from the Sweet Stampin DT ♥
