October’s ‘Sparkle and shine’ winners…

Good evening everyone!

We have reached the time to announce our winners for our ‘Sparkle & shine’ challenge last month.  We were delighted to see such a glorious treasure trove of beautiful, sparkly entries so thank you ALL very much!

OctoberWinnerRO#140_thmb544af0e53b86bWe encourage entries of all crafts and from crafters with all levels of experience and we think the fairest way of choosing the winner of the £20 shop voucher is by random.  We do so by using the random number generator at and this month, the lucky number is…  #140 – Samantha Wade of Craft Room Delights.

As DTM Doreen chose the theme for October, it falls to her to select our Top 3 and DTMSM (most creative and original interpretation) blog badge winners so here are her choices and what she had to say about them…

TOP 3 (by numerical order of entries)
#17_thmb542ebaea58102#17 – Ingrid Kristina of INGRID’s CRAFTS CORNER – CAS card
Love what she has done to the butterfly,the sequins really add a sparkle.

#86_thmb543e01a2a9db7#86 – Sara of sarascloset, wall hanging
Wow love all the details this lady has put into this fabulous Halloween creation, love the Glimmer Misted spider webs.

#148_thmb544d534de1fb7#148 – Kezzy of KEZZYS CRAFTY JOURNEY, coaster
Love the idea of using the glue gun for the spider web, a brilliant work of art.

#151_thmb544e46d294ef3#151 – Nicola of Paper Profusion, chipboard house
What can I say this must have taken ages it is a stunning piece of work all the details and the finishing touches, just superb.

Well done and congratulations to all of our winners and a big THANK YOU to all of you who entered.  We hope to see lots of lovely entries for this month’s challenge too, so GOOD LUCK!  Smile
