And the Winners Are........

 First of all, the winners of the metallic markers in the May challnege, thanks to all of you who took part (some of you more than once). I had such a hard time choosing a favourite this month.

Before I go on to that, those of you with Shabby Blogs backgrounds on your blogs,  Google is flashing up a malaware notice,  apparently Shabby blogs has been hit by a virus, so if I didn't comment on your challenge card, this is the reason - I managed to get hold of a couple of you with the message, but didn't have contact details for everyone, so this is just a heads up

The other thing is word verification. Can I made a heartfelt plea for folk to turn off this dratted thing. They have recently made it even more difficult, all the letters are now wobbly and strange, and it can take me as much as three tries to get it right. Go to your settings and click off. If you are worried about spam, turn on comment moderation instead, it means you get to vet the posts before they are published. More about that later.......

Now on to the fun stuff. The card I chose as my favourite of the month is this one by


I am a sucker for these flowerpot cards and I loved the shades of blue that she chose. 

and the second winner, drawn by random.org (#44) was#

Cheryl W

with this lovely bird card, which was also on my (rather long) list of favourites this month, so it was nice to see her number come up....... 

Congrats to you both. Your prize will be sent direct from Letraset, so please go to their site to decide whether you want set 1 or set 2 of the markers, then email me with your name, address and telephone number.

On to the draw for the metallic markers that I used for my Letraset post. the name that came out on the random thingy for them was


Congrats CyndiU, email me with your address and I will get them in the mail to you

I will draw the winners of the Jubilee goodies on Saturday and post them on Sunday, so be sure to pop back then

I am turning comment moderation on again, which means that your comments won't show up straight away when you make them. All of a sudden I am having a lot of idiot messages, and although the spam filter catches most of them, I want to make sure that no suspicious stuff makes it onto the blog, and I don't think many of you are interested in adding inches to a dangly bit of anatomy that 99.9% of us don't possess! Come to that, hands up all those of you who have a relative called Okambo Mutiwashe in Kenya. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but poor old Uncle Okambo has died, the good news is he has left us £31.5 million. Bless him, he always was my favourite uncle......... Here is a message for Sexy Suzes - thank you for the offer Suzes, I am not really interested in having a penfriend, even one who will send me photos to look at. So comment moderation it is I think

I'll be back tomorrow with the June challenge, sponsored by Letraset again (but first I have to go away and think of a challenge to set, and make a card)


  1. I can't believe these kinds of messages are still coming to us. I too had a long lost "family" member pass and leave me money. It would be funny except they do rip people off with these things. Wish they could catch and lock them up. Thanks for sharing all of your crafting projects.

  13. Beautiful cards and many congrat's

  14. Congrats to the winners! Well deserved!
    I totally agree with you on the word verification. I have a very though time reading some of those letters. Why do they have to make things so difficult? I don't get that much traffic on my blog, but it has been stepping up and luckily the spam filter has caught them all so far.
    Why do people have to make things so tough for us when all we are trying to do is share with others what we love to do?

  15. How exciting to be a winner! Thank you, Enfys, for these fun challenges. I love participating. I'll send you an email asap.

  16. Congrats to the winners! I enjoyed entering the challenge last month and hope to again this month.

    I so can relate with your frustrations with those darn spammers! Ridiculous!

  17. Enfys,
    Congrats to all the winners. Thanks for the chance to enter and looking forward to the new challenge.

  18. Wow...congrats to all the winners and I am so sorry you and everyone else might be having trouble with all the viruses and scams!!!

  19. omg Messages like that can destroy your computer with viruses...someone hacked into mine 6mths ago and I was deleting up to 4000 emails in one morning until I changed my email addy...then my computer crashed totally and had to get a new one...so caution is necessary. Glad I found your blog so now I can participate...thanks to Eret..wasn't her card awesome...
    cheers, Aussie Annie♥

  20. So, who won the CD and the card candi please, or have I missed this somehow? Thanks.
