Last month’s Flowers & St. Patrick’s Day Challenge theme was so much fun! We loved looking through all of the beautiful entries you shared in the Flickr Pool. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who participates in our challenges and contributes to the Hero Arts community - you are the best! We have some exciting news to share about our challenges today, so be sure to read all the way through this post!! As is always the case, narrowing down to a handful of winners was tremendously difficult, but we did just that. Without further ado…
Our Fresh Face prize goes to joytaylor1975. This is just one example of the many fabulous cards she’s shared in her photostream - be sure to check them all out HERE. Her style is crisp, clean and completely gorgeous. We’re so happy to have her contributing to our challenges!
The next card is from our Digital category winner, sarahjane4kids (Sarah M). She didn’t just print out a digital element from our Sketch Tulips Digikit, **SHE PRINTED IT ON CANVAS**!! Sorry for yelling, but how completely fabulous is that??
And now on to our Fab Five, presented in no particular order. Just like our Fresh Face and Digital winners, every member of the Fab Five will receive a $50 Hero Arts shopping spree!
As we went through this month’s submissions, time and again we’d pause on a card, admiring its beauty, and then find it was yet another breathtaking submission from Agata Dag. Here is just one of many that we loved!! Punching out flowers from the stamped Friend Definition is just wonderful - and do I spy snaps in the flower centers?? Such a cute embellishment!
And in the unofficial “why didn’t I think of that??” category, we have mabelscrap and her fantastic flower made from butterfly wings!! So very clever! And the blue and pink colors just pop against the kraft background. Love it!
We all love the stitched look on cards, right? Well… oh my goodness… would you just look at what ClaudiaS9 did!!?! She stamped one of our flowers, and then used that as a guide for hand-stitching with embroidery floss! Such a fun and sweet card!
And finally, since we’re still excited about stitching - WOULD YOU LOOK AT THIS!?!? Ok, more yelling, sorry - but wow - mi kasa (Donna) took our Large Cupcake stamp and used it as a template on felt. Lots of stitching and “sprinkles” and even a “frosting flower” on top!! So creative and yummy!
Congratulations to all the winners!! And now the exciting news! Starting with today’s group of winners, we will be shipping your prizes directly from Hero Arts, rather than from our shopping site. Why is this exciting for you? It means there will no longer be any shipping charges associated with your prizes!! WOOHOO!! So winners, as always, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and phone number, and also include your list of $50 worth of product! You can look through our store HERE to create your list. Please include “February2010B Winner” in the subject line.
Thanks to everyone who played along this month, your art was incredibly inspiring to all of us! Remember our March challenge theme, Spring & Easter, is underway! You can find all of the details HERE.
And before you go… please be sure to scroll down one post and visit with Nancy today!
