Prize Winner and pics for the Month of June 2019


Now comes the hardest part of the Challenge. 

We decided we didn't want to use the Random Picker as it was felt
    that cards should be chosen for a number of reasons not
 'luck of the draw'.

          When we look at the cards entered we are each drawn to different styles,
          techniques and designs. So all the design team have input, each has been
         asked to pick out three cards that stand out to them and why.


         The cards getting the most votes will then be posted on our Winners post
          and the other cards will be listed under Top Pick and Honourable Mention.

         We have a PRIZE to give away to our lucky winner this time too
Deepti Malik has been kind enough to provide one of her beautiful stamp
 sets for our winner. Look HERE  to see all of her lovely stamps.

Please can the winner email us with your name and full address
so we can give you details of how to claim your prize.
Our email address is below.
