Challenge #14 winners Post plus some other things!

Hello Everyone, my, isn't November flying along - how many weeks left to Christmas?
 Don't tell - I will become too panicky!

Well, didn't our last Challenge (#14)  go gang busters! 

You were all asked to make your own flower embellies, and these did not have to be attached to anything but you all did attach them - clever people! Many of you didn't tell us how you made them though - or if there was a tutorial link, it wasn't added.  Some flowers were made from amazing things - fabric, gauze, ribbons, old paper.......and looked spectacular.

Our Sponsor for this challenge was Emerald Fairies and the winner gets two images of their choice. 

As with most things, there is only one winner however, and this fortnights inner (chosen by our leader Hilde, who says "OMG, so many gorgeous entries, so hard to pick, but I really love ..............!" )...........drum roll...................wait for it....................

Congratulations Heather - please contact Barb for your prize via email
Don't forget to also collect your winners badge from the sidebar and display it in your next blog to brag a little!

Our TOP THREE were chosen this fortnight by Barb.  She has also just had her craft space revealed on Sunday - WOW, I love that Disney room that is about to become the Craft Room! Envy.........

#4 Jane Savage - Beautiful Poinsettias in my favorite Winter color combination of blue and white

#14 Norma - Amazing ability to make handmade look store bought. Be sure to check out her blog for both inspiration and tutorials!

#28 Gail -  For hand cut flowers and the bravery to show off her toes. She's getting ready for sandal season and here in Canada we've stopped shaving our legs (much to our husband's horror, lol). It's not like anyone (besides husbands) are going to see them for the next 6 months, rofl.

Congratulations to all of you and please don't forget to collect the TOP THREE badge and display it proudly.

Challenge # 15 : Card with Stickpins-Theme :Things with Wings/plus freebie 

Sponsored this fortnight by   -3 digis of your choice!

There is plenty of inspiration on the post about this challenge, but just in case you want some more, here is another card, this one by Barb, and featuring one of the images from our lovely sponsor for this challenge


Isn't that a stunner! Love the feathers Barb!

As you can see, Barb has included two stick pins in her card - it MUST BE A CARD - and some of us have put more than one but you can use one, two , three or can make them or use store-bought ones, or ones that have been gifted to you. Just use a stick-pin in your card somewhere. As we are so close to Christmas, I assume we will get lots of Christmas cards but you don't have to make a Christmas one - make whatever kind of card you wish - but it is a good chance to make that extra-special card for someone. 

Go a bit OTT (over the top) as I did, or Hilde; or keep it simple like Tania, Wynn or Judith did, allowing the inks and stamping to shine. Or you can look at Kelli's card. Go on, have a tour around and then - add a stick pin to a card and enter it!
