Silhoette Stamps Competion Winners & Little Claire Likes - 'Meadow Girl'

 Happy Monday to you!
Thank you to all that left us comments on our wonderful new Silhouette Stamps and design team creations, here are our winners.
From Day 1 : 'Do all of the things' & 'Silhouette Elephants'
Ann, -  who has won the stamp - 'Elephant Silhouette' who said :
'oh my favourite stamps are silhouettes ones - you can do so much with them. I love both these, but as I have a 21st card to do for a girl who will be spending her birthday in Kenya I think the elephant stamp is a winner for me. Love them both though and can't wait to see the rest of the range'.

From Day 2 : 'Meadow Girl' & 'Picnic Silhouette'
Toni, - who has won the stamp - 'Picnic Girl', said :

These are lovely and so useful. Difficult to choose between them but if I had to, maybe 'Picnic Girl'. I just love eating 'al fresco'. Roll on summer and the end of this rubbish weather we're having so we can all get our picnic baskets out again.
