Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - August 2015 Challenge - A Floral Display

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.
As mentioned anyone that entered that used an image from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store would get a second entry into the draw. 

The winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 13 and that card has been created by Art Jypsy.  This is Art Jypsy's cards that she made:
Congratulations Art Jypsy.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
As mentioned in the post on 1 November 2014, there is now an "Artist's Choice Award" every month.  To be in with a chance of winning this award you need to use one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps from her Etsy Store for your card/creation.  At the end of the month Ching-Chou Kuik will look at all those cards/creations using one of her digital stamps from the Etsy Store and pick one winner that will get the "Artist's Choice Award" and will also get to pic 3 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award is No 8:
and that card is by Aurora.  Congratulations Aurora.

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

Congratulations Lozzy.  I will be in touch with you shortly to give you details of the September Challenge and for you to let me know what image you would like to use for the challenge as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

For those that were not lucky there is always next month.
