Spring colours

Hi all you crafty people. Helene here to host this fortnight's challenge. The previous one was - being Anything goes - of course very popular and we had many lovely contributions to go through. Unfortunately not all were eligible to win since they entered more than one project :(.
But there has to be a winner and there has to be a decided top three. So here goes:

Our randomly chosen winner is:

And our top three are, in no particular order:

So, over to our new challenge for you. The theme is Spring colours, hopefully a perfect theme for this time of the year - even way up in the north where I live the nature is starting to come alive again :)
Our sponsor is Live and Love Crafts, a wonderful craft store specializing in Vintage and Shabby Chic Craft supplies.

And please remember that our rules clearly state one entry per person!

Here are the DT contributions to inspire you all:

Anything goes

Welcome to the Mid March challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend.  
Thanks for entering our last challenge. the lucky winner chosen by random of the sparkle and shine challenge is...
Congrats! Please e mail us to claim your prize from Bunny Zoes!

Thank goodness this winter is almost over, I know that a lot of my friends and relatives have seen enough snow and cold weather to last them till next year.  But there's still a possibility of more snow for some of you, so if there's some white stuff falling around your home why don't you get grab your stamping gear and enjoy a nice warm weekend inside stamping and crafting, that sounds like fun to me.

Now that you're ready to stamp you probably want to know what our challenge is.  It's the easiest one ever, it's "Anything Goes".   So whatever you need to make for your stash can be entered into our challenge as long as it contains some stamping, we'll even accept a digital image.  Just keep in mind there is a limit of one entry per person.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Marker Pop

You can find everything in this store so when you're ready to take a break from stampin' pop on over and check them out.  Have your credit card ready cause you're going to want to pick up some goodies.

Here at Stampin' for the Weekend the Design Team takes turns writing the post and picking the top three. Of all the DT duties picking the top three has got to be the most difficult task there is.  The entries into our challenge are always amazing.  Whenever it's my turn (Chris V) to pick the top three it takes me hours.  I start out with about 50% of the entries as my picks, and that was already a difficult decision.  Slowly but surely I go back and forth and give entries either more plus signs or eliminate them but it isn't easy or fast.  So if your card didn't get picked, don't fret it.  It was great, every entry is great but only three can be picked.  This week I have picked three very different styles of cards, one clean and simple, one with fancy die cuts and frills, and one somewhere in the middle of the those two styles.  In numerical order:

And now for some DT inspiration...




And now it's your turn! Thanks for joining us again.
Much love
