January challenge winners

Time for some winners from our January challenge entries.

I have heard from all the Blog Hop winners and those in the UK should already have theirs, but I figure the others will take a little longer but rest assured they are all on their way.

As usual Mr Random Org has done his stuff and here is what he pulled out of the hat:

First up the winner of a fabulous 15% lifetime discount from PB Stamps........

As well as our regular four stamps, we have a new sponsor offering a fabulous prize every month, plus a special one off prize for a winner selected from all the new followers who link up this month....................and as you will know from my post a few days ago, on 15th January we are hosting a Blog Hop, lots of fun and excitement and more fabulous prizes to be won. So keep an eye on your dashboard so you don't miss a thing.........please lift our special logo from our sidebar to help spread the word

To kick off the New Year we have a fresh new challenge for you and would like to see your interpretation's based on the Beatles 1967 song hit:

All you need is Love

.........who are offering a lifetime 15% discount for products purchased from their store, it you have never visited them you don't know what you are stamps, old stamps and even discontinued stamps..............I was ubber thrilled to find a really old one there a couple of weeks ago that has been a 'need' item for ages.

Now for an extra special bit, we will select a extra winner from those who link up as a follower this month. So many people keep telling us they are so surprised but excited to find us, so if you link up to follow us you will be the first to know about all that's going on.
