Hi, everyone! The winners of last month's Paint It Red Challenge are here. We also have the winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and February Inspiration Projects, as well as a couple of surprise winners :o) All winners were randomly drawn.

Remember, for February, March, and April, we're doing one big challenge and as long as you follow the theme for those months, you can play along and play as often as you want!  

An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). All winners must claim their prizes by the deadline. 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. 

Also, please make sure you follow our challenge rules. I had to re-draw winners a couple of times because they either (a) did not display the challenge graphic in their blog post, OR (b) did not directly link back to the challenge post, OR (c) did not leave a comment on the entry before theirs in the gallery. Our modified rules are pretty simple and we want to be fair to those who do take the time to read and follow them.

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Friday, March 23. Prizes not claimed by then will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away $100 to $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually. I also want to be fair to those who regularly visit our blog and claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations February Random Draw - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations February Random Draw - Inspiration Project Post"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, do include your complete mailing address in the email you send, even if I already have mailed to you before. (It saves me time having to look up your address.)

    had the chance to craft much, except
    some decorations for the shower.
    I was eyeing your new cover plate dies
    and a few stamp sets. I can’t wait to shop :-)
    Thank you so much, Shery! Congrats to all
    of the winners!
