9.12.2012: Announcements

I have some winners to announce from last week’s challenge, but first, I have another kind of announcement to make!

Simon Says Stamp and Show is excited to announce that Tracey Kuznak is joining our design team!

She is a regular participant around here - you may have seen some of her beautiful creations before. Tracey is from Canada and has enjoyed crafting since childhood. She loves inky techniques and can be found blogging regularly here.

We’re excited to have her join us – watch Monday for her debut project and to see a project by a very special guest as well. Lots of exciting things happening here  - and we love sharing it all with you!

Reminder: the Hero challenge is still open - and with $50 to at stake - you should be sure to enter here!!

Now let's talk about the "Read all about it" challenge and the top 3, as well as the winner of our special STAMPTEMBER blog hop and challenge last week!

Note: if you hopped around our design team's blogs, be sure to check back in and see if you've won a prize from one of us!

I'd like to thank Simon Says Stamp for the super generous $100 they are offering up for this special challenge! If you aren't already - be sure to follow Simon's blog to see all kinds of STAMPTEMBER fun! The lucky (randomly drawn) winner for is...

Congratulations! Please claim your prize within the next two weeks by emailing May with your details.

Each week in addition to randomly drawing a winner from the entries to win a voucher to Simon Says Stamp, the design team also nominates their favorite entries for our weekly top 3. There was so much great use of text, papers, and stamping this week - as with every week - your entries blow us away! I was thinking for this week I might have to make a new 'top 10' blinkie - but eventually we got it narrowed down as we always do. No easy task! Here are this week's top 3:


Be sure to visit their blogs and check out their amazing entries. So inspiring! Congratulations to each of you on a challenge well done! Please email May for the Top 3 Blinkie.

I'd like to thank everyone who took part in the challenge. It is always a joy to see what you create. I'd also like to say thank you again to Simon Says Stamp for their generosity - each week we give away a gift voucher to the shop that you can use to buy all kinds of fabulous stamps, inks, and paper crafting supplies. Remember - you just need to enter the challenge each week to be entered into the drawing!
