We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

We Have a Winner

Well, this was the most difficult decision we had to make.  How do you pick a winner and a runner up from such fabulous entries?  It almost came to putting names in a hat and choosing a winner as so many were worthy of it.  All of you deserve a honourable mention for the work you submitted.  Well done each and everyone of you.

Well, as said above, it was a difficult choice to make but in the end it came down to a host of tabs on the computer screen and a gradual narrowing down to the final decision.  So without any further ado the winner is ...

...

...

Hazel H for her beautiful bookmark and use of translucent paste and stencils.



Our runner up is ...

...

...

Julia (S-W) who made a three layer embossed card with a handmade bead.



We could not let it go without a special mention to Heather who created a digi design using a photograph she had taken of a snake.  It's ingenuity and vivid colour really did make the final two runners up a difficult decision.



Well done to all of you.  Now Hazel and Julia need to email Neet (addie on right side of her blog under the guise of a sweet young lady image) for copies of the blinkie they can now display on their blogs and Hazel for the code for this month's prize.

Well done to all of you - and we mean each and every one of you who entered our challenge.  The "Time" challenges were fabulous but when it came to choice the Chinese New Year ones won. Hope you all understand the difficult choices we had to face and how we came to a decision in the end.
