Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - May 2015 Challenge - Lovely lace

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 6 and that card has been created by Barbara G.  This is the card that Barbara made:
Congratulations Barbara.  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 16:
and that card is by Elena.  Congratulations Elena.

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.
