Winners of the Christmas Penguins Challenge

Hello everyone - it's Louise here to announce the winner and top 3 from our  
 "Christmas Penguins" Challenge. 

A big thank you for all your entries in the challenge and thank you again to our wonderful sponsor for the challenge:

"Aloha! My name is Ruth, and I'm the owner/illustrator of Kitty Bee Designs, out of beautiful Hawaii. After a long day of staring at numbers, doodling at night was my way of relaxing. I have always been a "card maker at heart" and a "paper hoarder" but could never find that "perfect" rubber stamp design. Kitty Bee Designs was created to fill the need for simple and whimsical stamp designs. These stamps were specifically made to bring a smile to the creator and receiver of these cute stamp designs. I hope you enjoy them as much as we (the lovely design team) do here at Kitty Bee Designs.


We offer all of our images in digital format and some even make it to limited-run clear stamps!! You can find our images in our Etsy Store and wonderful inspiration + super fun challenges on our blog!! Come swing by and say hello!!!"

Kitty Bee Designs also have a Facebook page here.


Our lucky winner (chosen by Random.Org) of one non-coloured digi from Kitty Bee Designs is:

entry #5 - Helen

to claim your prize please e-mail Helen at winterwonderlandchallenge@yahoo.com

Also don't forget to take your winner's badge from the tab at the top of the blog.

Helen's card was one of my favourites as I love the soft colouring of the bear and penguin.



It wasn't an easy job to choose a top 3 from all the wonderful entries but here is my selection (in order of entry):


 #8 - Fabiola
Very cute penguin and I love the colours Fabiola used.


This is a to-the-edge shaker card! (I need to find out how to make one!) Also I love these penguins - I use them quite a bit.


#26 - Marina
This is a totally adorable penguin! Marina also digitally made the Noel sentiment!


Congratulations to you all - please take a 'top 3' badge from the tab at the top of the blog.
