....and the Flower Show winners are:

Good evening! I have some winners for you!! The Randomly chosen winner of the April Flower show CASE competition is this entry:

Maria, you win the grand prize!! huge Congratulations and thank you for playing along with your beautiful entry! pop me an email on and I will arrange your prize of FIVE sets of stamps!!

And now I have three more stand-out entries each winning a £15GBP WMSstore credit!

There were many, many beautiful entries for the CASE comp and I set myself a hard task to only pick three as spot prize winners. This was such a toughie and I have been agonizing over the choices all day! There were sooo many fabulous entries, but I had to narrow it down and here are three that made me smile real wide!

Barb Murphy absolutely knocked my socks off with this take on JJ Bolton's Flower show card.

I loved everything about this - the texture, the colours, the little wee pearls, most unexpected, but the perfect accent! It's a super example of how to recreate a card but make it completely your own at the same time.

Next up was this stunner, Laura Jane's card simply demanded my attention, a CASE of another JJ Bolton card!

Look at the vibrancy of that blue! I could only capture the tiny little thumbnail image for this blog post, you will need to visit the card for yourself to see the full glory, but this card was just alive! You should also check out her Cherry blossom card, softly stunning!

And I just kept coming back to this beauty by Kary Lim, just to take in the saturated colour!

Stunning colour skills Kary, I love that you used the roses and the co-ordinating label design also! A wonderful interpretation of Meredith's original card!

Oh I could have just kept on picking out fabulous cards and I do hope you can all join us again for our next challenge I have something brewing, more deets later on.

If you ladies could pop me an email on with the words Stand out winner in the subject line that would be fabby, I can then organize your prizes.

I want to thank everyone for taking part - it is most inspirational to see what folks make with their WMS and I really hope folks enjoyed it as much as I have!!

I'd love to hear if you folks have any special requests for future themed challenges - I have a few up my sleeve, but I'm so interested to hear if you have any special requests, leave a comment here if you do!
