Before I announce the winners I am really sorry to say I had to delete 20 + entries for our Blooming Images challenge because they either entered too many challenges, please check our rules for this, but it’s no more than 15 including our own, or they did not have flowers as their focal point on the card. Some had sentiments and some even had characters. It was clearly stated, as it is in all of our posts, what we wanted to see from you. As our sponsors provided us with very generous prizes it’s only fair to the people who do follow the criteria, not to include those who don’t. I know I sound like a right old moaner, but whilst we love seeing your amazing creations, we really would like them to match what we are asking.
Now enough of the moaning!!
Marie was our hostess for this challenge and she has chosen her Winners/Top 5 as follows:-
No 16 - Shea Marshall for this lovely looking card
and for the mystery donor prize of the Die Cutting Set
No 85 - Jyothi for the brilliant use of some free designer papers
and Marie's Top 5 are
Congratulations to you all, please feel free to display our Winner’s badge or Top 5 badge on your blogs. Would the two winners please contact me at the address in the sidebar stating the number of the challenge, the title of the challenge and which prize they have won in the subject line. The winner of prize from Hobby Art will also need to provide me with a snail mail address so their prize can be mailed out to them.
The winners have until 17th March to claim their prize, after which time I am afraid the prize(s) will be forfeit. As we choose our winners, rather than having a random number thingy to pick them it's too difficult and time consuming to go back again and go through the entries to pick out new winners. Neither, sadly do we have time to chase the winners up.
