Winners of the Bookmark Challenge

Hello everyone,
I am so sorry I wasn't here this morning as planned but unfortunately, as I am sure you will know yourselves, sometimes family or personal issues take precedence over everything else. That is the case with me at the moment with everything that is going on.  I hope you can understand.
The funny thing is the time spent sorting family issues and sharing time with them in this glorious sunshine has really helped us to put things in perspective and I think we are all feeling a bit more positive today.  So I hope this weekend and wonderful sunshine finds you all well and in good spirits too.

Well I have taken time to look at the wonderful bookmarks that have been entered in the challenge and I realised there is no way I could sit and play judge over the wonderful work you guys have done, so I am going to stick with the usual tool (Random Org) and let it choose for me.

BUT before I do I wanted to let you know that I decided to have  2 winners.
I was lucky enough to be given a beautiful stack of 6x6inch papers by K&Co and so I thought I would share them with a second place winner.  So without any further ado, here are the numbers drawn and the corresponding winners............... 6 and 3.........

No 6 corresponds to our Winner:-  Linda Wescott
Here is her winning Bookmark -

No 3 corresponds to our Runner-up:- Lesley Timmins
another worthy winner don't you agree.

BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH!!!!!  And thank you so very much to everyone that entered.  Maybe we will do something again soon without such specific requirements (though I must admit I have really enjoyed seeing the variety of bookmarks).
Please can you both email me at and I will get your wonderful papers off to you asap.  Maybe I can get to see some fabulous creations using the papers sometime?!

Take care all and have a fabulous weekend.  I am back to the family now and maybe, if I have time later, I will get up to the craftroom and make a card. I do so love my crafting time to myself, don't you?!
Warmest wishes to you all (extremely Hot wishes at the!).  Linda xx


  1. Hi Linda, I have read about your sad eventw with your family, I am so sorry for you all. It's good that you are starting to put things into perspective, but I guess you'll all be hurting for a long time yet, my thoughts are with you,

    Congrats to the lucky winners

    1. I have received wonderful words of comfort from everyone and it has done my heart good to know that even people I have never met can care so deeply for the suffering of others. As I have said to everyone else, thank you so very much. I will not forget this. I would like you to go back two post if you can, as I made a card to express my gratitude to you all.
      Have a good weekend. Linda x

  2. I'm pleased to hear your family are able to feel a little more positive after the time you've had together. I'm so delighted to have won a prize in the bookmark challenge...I had so much fun playing along. I have to admit I like the 'real' challenge of having to follow specific requirements, but I understand that not everyone wants to do that. I'll look forward to playing along with you if you decide to run a challenge again. Congrats to Lesley too. And well done to everyone who entered, they were all stunning bookmarks. Hugs lin

  3. Well done to both Linda and Lesley!! I'm sure you will really enjoy your papers and get a lot of joy from them.

    I'm glad you are all starting to feel a little brighter Linda (sunshine always seem to make us feel a bit better) and pray that you continue to do so. There will be down times again, I have no doubt, but you will get there!

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Love from Christine xx

  7. Hi Linda,
    pleased to hear you've had some special time with your family. Congrats to the winners of the comp they deserve it. I know how you felt about picking the winners as they all were superb. I spent the day yesterday with my granddaughter choosing and trying on the little bridesmaids dresses. Then later I had to plant my hanging baskets as the plants were in need of potting on. Have a great crafty day everyone, and to the winners enjoy your papers, maybe we will see them in some other comp.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
