Fashion Design winners

Another bank holiday and a fairly typical British one at that!    The other benefit of Bank Holiday's a short working week.    Always a great opportunity to craft.   Time to share our Fashion theme winner and top three.

I'll start as usual with the winner of the Random draw, this lucky fashion designer will be to choose NZ$20 worth of stamps from Flonz Craft and not have to worry about the shipping cost at all.

That lucky winner is  No.35 Maggymay (AKA Yvonne)   Please send me an email and I'll let you know how to claim your prize.   We are still waiting to hear from our sponsor so will have to let that winner know when we do, sorry out of our control.

Hazel had the difficult but delightful time selecting just 3 for her top picks and they are:

Congratulations everyone we hope to see more of your work very soon.

Here is Hazel to introduce you to the new challenge.

Hi all, it's my turn to choose the latest challenge theme and I have chosen FASHION. I think most of us love fashion, whether we follow all the latest trends ourselves or just enjoy looking at it in magazines. For my card I have chosen fashion of the 50's. I love this era, the dresses on my card remind me of the ones that my mum use to wear. For your creations you can choose any fashion style through the ages. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create. Have fun.

All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.
