November Competition Winner


I knew black and white was going to be a good theme and that it would bring out some lovely cards. However, I wasn’t expecting the sheer amount of wonderful cards that the ladies made for this competition. 30 cards in total and they were all so nice. In fact it was so hard to choose a favourite that I let everybody have two votes this time. That gave me twice as many votes to count though  Thinking smile 
But I’m pleased to announce the winner on 10 votes was…
Maralene – Card 1
IMAG0043
 
Maralene’s card is a gatefold card. These two photos show the card from different angles. I love the black decorative mirror card that Maralene has used.

Thank you again everyone and Maralene your gift voucher will be ready for you when you next come into the shop.
I’d just like to take this time to thank everyone who has taken the time to make cards for the competitions throughout the year.  It has been a lot of fun and I love seeing the cards you have made and also the progress you have all made. The standard of cards you make is outstanding and I can see the improvement as your confidence grows. I can’t wait for more next year and I hope you will all join in again.
Have a safe and very merry Christmas. Stay safe and see you all in 2013.

October Competition Winner

 

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner to you all. I have had a very busy weekend with visitors and we’ve been doing a lot of stuff around the house since hubby has a long weekend. We’ve cleaned out our shed and got rid of all the rubbish that was in there and we’ve started building the walls for our renovations. Woohoo!

I finally got time to take some photos of the cards this morning and my camera played up…AGAIN! I think I’m going to have to order a new battery and I really hope that it’s just the battery and not the camera itself Disappointed smile

Anyway, enough of me waffling on…we had a close competition again this month with some definite favourites amongst all of you. BUT the overall winner on 5 votes was…
