We returned from lovely Northumberland last week, and then I immediately went to Knutsford to visit the Tatton Park Flower Show with a friend of mine.  Had a great time in both places - definitely ones to be recommended - and I will paste in a couple of pics at the bottom of this post.

But without further ado here are the winners of the July competition as chosen (with great difficulty I believe) by ZUZU - in no particular order!

A Fantastic Card by Shirley Sirje

Then A Fabulous Hanging by Sarah Engles-Greer

A Lovely Tag by Alipeeps

A Very Pretty Canvas by Suzanne

And A Beautiful Collage by Florence

All divine entries ladies!  Thank you one and all for entering - and as usual if you could email us at giving us your choice of rubber stamp, and your address, we will send them out the prizes poste haste.

Well done to the winners, but also well done to all of you who take part -  you make the challenge so delightful to look at and so much fun!

Finally tonight here are a few little pictures from our trips:

Firstly a sooo peaceful little boat by the sea (just love this!):

A dreamy photo of Bamburgh Castle from the beach:

Malcolm in a poppy field on Holy Island (we couldn't believe our luck when we came across this delight):

And lastly an image of lovely lillies from the flower show:

I think I can feel some more glossy sheets coming on!!!

Good night all.

One of my favourite day trip spots Bamburgh castle and the surrounding area. My Dad used to scare us to death as kids by telling us we only had 60 seconds to get across the Holy Island causeway before the sea ate us up lol. Jeeze!

It was very very hard to pick 5 winners from the challenge. I had 7 definites and couldnt decide which two to let go. a bit like torture really. loved looking at the projects this month, as its one of my favourite vintage colour schemes. thanks to all who joined in.

Ali said...

Loving the new photos... very atmospheric.
