A note from Shery (2/15): To all the lovely ladies who have emailed and claimed their prizes, please know that I have received your email. It is taking me a bit to get back to each of you with your gift certificate prize because I had a family emergency early Monday morning on February 13. My husband, David, was rushed to the ER. It has been a tough week so far and with him out of commission, I am left to assume all the duties on the home front, including caring full time for our 17-month old daughter. Since Sunday, my computer/work time has been limited. Please know that I will reply as soon as I'm able. Thanks for your patience and understanding. I'm also asking for prayers (for those of you who are believers) for my husband.

We've got JANUARY winners and top picks to announce -- and there are plenty of them! Winners of the January Stamps & Dies Release blog hop are also in this post.

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.

#13 ionabunny

The DT loved Gail's use of gold and black on such a creative and artsy card - just in time for the Oscars too!

Winners of $5 gift certificate to the store:

#7 Dee Earnshaw

Dee's card has so many delightful elements - those hearts-turned-shamrock, the gold splats and that B/W strip ties in so nicely with the gold stripes on the shamrock.

#2 Daria W.

Daria's card totally captures the celebratory feel of the inspiration photo. What a great way to use Party Girl for a special birthday card.

Here's your winner's badge, ladies. Display it proudly!
