Competition Winners & Little Claire Likes - 'Hearts & Flowers'

  Good morning,

Thank you to all of you that entered our competition last week to win our two newest stamps :

'Book Owl' & 'Hot Air Balloons'

Our winners, picked randomly are :

Shirley Davis, who said

'Definitely the book owl! It was the name I first used across the net way back in 1998. I love owls and have a collection of ornamental and decorative ones so this stamp would feel at home. A very snazzy bird!'


Debra Kenworthy, who said

'My favourite of your new stamps are the Hot Air Balloons. I would love to be on one somewhere dry and a bit warmer than here! I love your cards showing the different ways they can be used, very inspiring. Debra x'

Well done to Shirley & Debra.  Please contact our lovely Carol - who will forward on your stamps - enjoy playing!
