March Challenge and Blog Hop winners

Time for the Polkadoodles weekly challenge, this week, it's Pretty in Pink, I used a scene and image from the new Sugar plum CD, I printed the little girl out twice, once onto spotty paper and cut out her dress from that and paper pieced it. I added some punched flowers to the fence scene. Do join in with the challenge if you fancy making a pink card - you don't have to use Polkadoodles products

On to the winners of the March challenge. The entry I chose for originality of the use of 'found' items was this one by Brenda (Brenda was the random draw winner last month, and the favourite of the month this month! Just shows, it pays to keep trying.....). She used all mannner of stuff, including dyeing a shelf liner, and building a fence out of matchsticks! Well done Brenda

and the random winner was Gra, with this lovely mermaid card,  using wrapping paper very effectively to create a watery background for her mermaid card - congrats Gra

If you would both email me with your address and telephone number, telling me which stamp set you would like Letraset to send you, your prizes will be in the mail to you

On to the winner of the Sugar Plum Polkadoodles CD blog hop winner. The name that Mr Random.org pulled out of the hat was.......

MelodyR aka Ry&MysMan

Congrats Melody, email me with your address and I will get your CD in the mail

The next challenge will be posted tomorrow, be sure to call back and see what I have come up with for this month. 

A lot of you have noticed a rather deafening silence this week, I don't think I have ever gone so long without posting, and thanks to all my regular blog friends who noticed and emailed me. Without going into detail, Mike my husband was taken ill rather suddenly and dramatically on Sunday night, this week has been a constant round of tests and treatments, he is getting better and the doctors are pleased with him, but our trip to the USA has had to be postponed for the time being, so I have had a lot to deal with this week, and any thoughts of crafting or blogging were very firmly on the back burner! I'm back now though, so I'll see you tomorrow with the April challenge x
