Winner and Top Picks of our Vintage / Distressed / Shabby Chic Challenge

Heya Peeps!

There were so many beautiful entries into our Vintage / Distressed / Shabby Chic challenge!  All you crafters sure have a lot of talent and inspire us so.

We had 2 sponsors for our challenge:

Here is a little about Margy, the shop owner:

My name is Margy (Margaret). I am a Christian, widow, mom to 3 beautiful daughters, and granny to 5 absolutely delightful, grandchildren. I was born in the UK in a small town called Tunstall, one of the 5 “pottery” towns in Staffordshire. My parents emigrated to South Africa when I was 2 years old, and I have been here ever since. 

I grew up on a farm just outside of Johannesburg, where I spent more time ‘outside’ than I did in the house. Because of the distance of the farm to the nearest city, I was unable to attend any formal art classes, but can vividly remember always wanting to be able to draw like my dad.
I am an avid crafter and have probably tried every new craft that has hit the SA scene! My other hobbies are oil painting, genealogy (already traced family lines back to the 1600’s), scrapbooking, restoring wooden furniture, mosaic, card making and digistamp designing. I took over ownership of Digistamps4Joy in 2010 and now spend a lot of my time drawing and preparing the digis for theshop. So, now that you know a little more about me, I hope you enjoy our digis and we would love to see what you have done with them! 

Margy's personal blog: Denique crafts

They are offering the winner a $10 to their wonderful online store!  That's a whopper of a prize!
