Winners, winners, winners!

Hello everybody!  Apologies from us here, and we know we owe you some Winners!  Unfortunately sometimes life just gets in the way, but we're catching up, 
so you definitely won't miss out on anything.

So here's a very busy post, announcing our random prize voucher winners, our Top Threes and our DT Member's Special Mentions for July, August and September.
Are you ready to meet some winners?

There's something about the softly blended colour tones of these journalling pages which just makes me happy - a real summertime warmth, and I love the stencilling and the little bird.

Alison said:
I love the soft summer haze around the masked sun, and the zing of that fabulous poppy standing out amongst the other meadow flowers.

Alison said:
These pages capture a summer garden just perfectly.  I love the use of die-cuts to create texture and the watercolouring on the flowers is absolutely luscious.


Our August DT Member's Special Mention is:

Alison said:
This delicate butterfly tree is really original, and such a delight. You can see how much love and work has gone into it, and the result is whimsical and charming and so summery - just lovely.

If you are one of our winners, whether Random, Top Three, or one of our DTMSMs and you would like to be a Guest Designer with us in 2016, please contact Brenda on so that she can arrange all the details with you.


We'll be back later in the month with the October winners, and don't forget there's always new inspiration to be found here for the current challenge.  For November Doreen would like to see The Colour Blue, so do come and play along.
Happy Crafting all!
