December Spotlight winners

Good Morning crafters, it's the 18th of the month which means time to announce the two.................and I can tell you they are very, very happy crafters.............entries who are the winners of our December In The Spotlight Feature.

Again, some beautiful entries and a tough task for the DT selecting their favourites, but we came down to two eventually who are....................

Some of the DT's comments: "beautifully details work", "clever use of images"
"a lovely blog to brows for inspiration"

Here is a little bit from Katherine about her crafting journey..................

"Hello. My name is Katherine. I live in the Philippines. I'm a single mother of two beautiful children, Kath 17 and Rein 11. My Mom lives with me. My favorite hobby is cross stitching in 1997 and became my business for over 9 years. I had a shop and sell cross stitch supplies. It was then closed in 2006 and shift and moved my business into a variety store located in front of our house. 

Photography and making handmade cards became a hobby too (and a business also) and started blogging it in September 2009. I was first introduced in drawings and making digital images. Some of my blog friends using my digital images in their cards. I have a lot of drawings kept in my drawing book, hopefully they will be shared soon. Some of the images I drew are now in rubber stamps that I made them myself. I never thought I will be recognized with my creations and projects especially in making cards and this inspires me everyday. Thank you so much. And by the way I'm also a Bonsai Enthusiast."

And the second winner is.................

and this is what the DT said about her work.............. "beautiful bright and cheerful", "lovely overall design"

Paula has written this to introduce herself to us all.................

"Hello, I am Paula and first of all, I want to thank you Brenda and the Penny Black and More design team for this honour.  I first got involved in stamping about two years ago, when I was searching about customize a box for my sister, in that moment I discovered a new world for me. Since then,  I spend hours visiting blogs and watching online videos to learn new techniques. 

When I have a few free time I take out my tools and stamps and I let my imagination run wild. I am a “stamp addict” and love all stamps. I don’t think I really have a particular style, perhaps I could describe most of my works  as rather funny and coloring , but I always try to make something new and I love the shabby-chic style."

Please join me in saying well done to Katherine and Paula and I know they would love to have a visit from you, as always just click on their name above their work to go directly to their individual blogs. And don't forget  Katherine and Paula, you can collect our special sidebar button and wear with pride on your blogs.

From the feedback I get, it seems everyone is enjoying our In the Spotlight feature and hearing about other crafters, how they got into crafting and what they enjoy doing.
