Spotlight and Weekly Winners

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  I'm scheduling this post in case the forecast thunderstorms arrive in SW Scotland - thunderstorms usually mean powercuts here in farming country as all of our cables are overhead rather then underground :0(   As I type the sky is VERY black but it's been like this for almost 24 hours and still no rain!
Anyhoo, I'd better stop wittering on about the weather and announce the winners from our Christmas in July challenge! We'll start as usual with the Spotlight feature.  We had so many gorgeous entries and I really felt it would be unfair to choose just one, so I tried to get a Top 3... and failed!  So we're having a Top 5 instead!
Here are our favourites, in no particular order

#28 Norma (check this out, it's a fabulous peek-a-boo card)



Aren't they gorgeous! Well done, everyone - please help yourself to our Spotlight Winner's blinkie for your lovely blogs.

Our sponsor for the Christmas in July challenge is sponsored by Craft Classes Online so there's a free seat on an online course waiting for our lucky winner.  I asked Mr Random to do the honours and he chose...

 you, #10 Jacqui P!  Congratulations Jacqui - please contact Abi and Fi (there's a link in the sidebar) to claim your prize.

This week we'd like you to share your favourite stamp with us.  We're being sponsored by Quixotic Paperie who are offering a £10 voucher to our lucky winner. 

Wishing you all a fabulous week and Happy Stampin'!

Spotlight and Weekly Winner

Good morning Sweet Stampers!  I hope you're all enjoying lovely sunny weather wherever you are.  I'm taking a break from gardening duty to announce the winners in our Perfect in Pink challenge.

As usual we'll start with our Spotlight feature.  I love to see a Sentiment as the focal point of a card so this one really stood out for me this week:

Well done, #18 Rebecca Bradshaw - this card is so, so pretty.  Please take our Spotlight Winner's blinkie for your blog and display it with pride!

Our Pink sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts so a floral themed prize is waiting for one lucky winner chosen at random.

That's you, #28 Sarah P! Congratulations! Please contact Abi and Fi (the link is in the sidebar) to claim your prize.

Our latest challenge is Christmas in July - there's nothing like getting ahead with those Christmas cards (says she who NEVER has her cards made in time!)  Remember though that you must STAMP in order to be eligible for entry into the prize draw.  We're being sponsored by Craft Classes Online who have a place on an online class to give away - wouldn't mind this myself!

Hope you all have a wonderful week with lots of sunshine! Happy Stampin'!
