Hi, everyone! The winners of last month's Focus on the Sentiments challenge are here. We also have the winners of our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge and April Inspiration Projects, as well as a few surprise winners. We also have the winners of our Things With Wings Giveaway, For the Love of All Things Coffee, and Layered Butterflies special posts :o) All winners were randomly drawn.

Remember, from February to April we did one big challenge!

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. To qualify for the April prizes, you must have (a) displayed the challenge graphic in your blog post {note: this rule did not apply to non-blogging players -- those who have Flickr, Splitcoast, Pinterest, etc.}, (b) directly linked back to the challenge post, and (c) left a comment on the entry before yours in the gallery. Our modified rules in April were pretty simple and we want to be fair to those who took the time to read and follow them.

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Thursday, May 24. 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 April Random Draw - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations April 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.)
