{NOVEMBER WINNERS}


We've got NOVEMBER winners and top picks to announce -- and there are plenty of them! Winners of all the blog hops in November are also in this post.

An important note: We usually publish the winners post by the 9th or 10th of the following month. All winners have up to 10 days to claim their prizes but this month is an exception since this winners post is delayed (due to my being ill since Thanksgiving week). All winners have until December 31 to claim their prizes. If you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar.

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Saturday, December 31. Prizes not claimed by December 31 will be forfeited.
**I will be taking a break from December 21 to December 30 so tangible prizes will be mailed in January. Gift certificates will be emailed within 5 days.**

Before I let you go, I want to remind you about a couple of events -- one that's underway and another that'll start tomorrow:

First, STAMPlorations is one of the super sponsors in the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop. Aside from the prizes we're giving away for the event, we have blog candy on our own post hereAnd just for Winter Coffee Lovers hop participants, products (except for the new releases) in the Coffee/Tea Lovers section of the store are 10% off until December 19. (No minimum order.) Use the coupon code WINTERCOFFEE on checkout.



The other event is our fifth ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop and Linky Party. The stencil fun starts tomorrow at 7 a.m. Pacific and you'll see the STAMPlorations girls share their creations using both old and new ARTplorations stencils. Then get ready to link up projects where you use stencils (any brand!) for a chance at the prizes. (Hint: you can link up stencil projects from November 20 onwards.)



I hope you're all having a wonderful week!
