CraftyJC Challenge 1: Winners

We had 19 21 entries for the main challenge & 8 for the bonus. Wowieee! I was amazed at the quality and creativity!

ETA: Priya Mohan had sent me her lovely entries for the first challenge by email. I am figuring out a way to see how I can host those pictures for your viewing. I thinking Picasa – any other ideas???

You girls are very very creative! After several rounds of visiting again and again – and inputs from DT – here are our Top 3 winners for the Challenge #1! I think starting the challenge was easier than deciding on the winners!


ETA: I had the wrong name below the cute ducks card. :) Corrected here.

The winner of the Prize is Tejal Shah. Please contact me at mail.craftyjc(at)gmail.com for the prize – 5 Digital stamps by Di’s Digi Downloads :)


And here are the winners of Bonus Sketch

Now for the Design Team for the next Challenge #3Tejal (Winner of the challenge) & Sudha (random participant). Please email me at mail.craftyjc(at)gmail.com so that I have your email address.

If anybody else wants to be part of DT email me – the first email I get would be the 3rd DT! :)

ETA: Announcing the 3rd DT member - Khona Rajwanshi:) Welcome aboard.

Looking forward to visiting your creations for the 2nd challenge. Have you jumped in yet! :))
