Our First Playdate Winner + March's Giveaway Winners

When we began the Playdate we didn't know it was going to be so gosh darn hard to pick one winner!  We were thrilled by every entry and appreciate that you graced us with your talents.  We truly love each of you and think you are all big-time winners.  Thank you so very much for participating!

As all of the projects were awesome, after much agonized discussion, it was how the winner interpreted the inspiration photo that clinched it for us.  We felt her card was such a clever play on the design found in the photo of the family made with fun colors, boldness and vivaciousness.

Without further ado here is the winning entry:


Shirley-bee aka Shirley Bampton, come on down!  We love the thought you put into this eye-catching card. Shirley stamped the hellos four times to represent the family members in the photo and then also had the words touch as does the family.  The lighter hued shadow hello is a lovely touch as is the hand-drawn border all on a polka dot border.

Shirley, please contact us at info {at} winniewalter {dot} com!

We can't wait for our next Playdate and we promise we won't make it as much of a challenge as our first. :-)


And our random March giveaway winners.  Woohoo!
