Alternative Christmas Winners

Sorry to have kept you all in suspense for so long about the winners of our last challenge but we're finally ready to reveal our winners.......

We had some fantastically creative ideas for using stamps in different ways - do check out the gallery on the challenge post for some inspiration - feathers for trees, flowers for wreaths and flowers turning into other flowers - I'll certainly be looking at my stamps with fresh eyes!

The No1 Fanatic's award this time around goes to Marybeth for her stunning 3D poinsettia created using folk art florals - wowser!  Congratulations on getting it published too Marybeth :-)

Our 3 runners up this time around, in order of entry were:

Julia - we loved the clever use of patterns paired up with gorgeous sentiment accented with the tiny pearls.

Sabrina - a genius idea to go nautical for Christmas - Deck the Halls Sailor Boy had me in stitches!

Lai-Yoke took a more traditional approach with her red and green colours but using the doilies to create the pattern really made her card pop!

Thanks so much for joining our challenge - you can claim your No1 Fan and Top 3 Fanatics badges from our winners page (see the tabs at the top)

I do hope you'll all be back to play in our current sketch challenge - much less taxing on the creative juices than this one we hope you'll agree - you have a little over a week left to play.
