Winners of the First Ever Dragonfly Challenge at our Blog!

Well, how exciting - Susan here, after all the waiting and the wonderful lead-up with that fantastic blog candy, our first challenge arrived.   Hilde provided us with a fabulous image to work with, and the DT put together a wonderful collection of cards, even if I do say so myself! Then the anxious wait to see if we got anyone responding to the challenge and the WOW factor when the first one appeared so quickly! 

There are such a talented lot of crafters out there who are willing to share their hobby with others and their knowledge. We are certainly quite privileged to belong to this community. We got to see an amazingly different and vibrant collection of cards based around the theme of Dragonflies. 

However, sadly not everyone gets a prize despite us having a goodly amount to give away this week - courtesy of our wonderful sponsors for this first ever challenge. 

                     Our very generous sponsors for our very first challenge are:
 Eureka Stamps First Prize :
Magnolia Tilda stamp ( surprise ) sent to you by Hilde plus
