Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - March 2016 - Easter/Spring Colours

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 4 and that decorated tag has been created by Mary.  This is the tag that Mary has made:
Congratulations Mary.  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.
Every month there is an "Artist's Choice Award".  The winner of this award will be picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.  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 pick 5 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" for February 2016 is No 16 and that card is by Liz:
Congratulations Liz.  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.

Now it is time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer.  Out of the names that said they would like to be considered in being a Guest Designer, the lucky winner for the Guest Designer for April 2016 is No 22:

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

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  

Thank you for your understanding.
