Challenge Winners - A Gift From The Heart and Getting Notifications...

Welcome to the start of a new week here at Frilly and Funkie, and it's time to announce the winners of the 'A Gift From The Heart' challenge. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to enter with so many fantastic projects. The Design Team were truly blown away by the incredible creations you guys made; there are some very lucky family and friends out there is all we can say! Boy, did that make our decision tough and we were really torn about who our winner should be this time. Finally we settled on an incredible altered Configurations Box Book by #6 Jane of Jane's Journal.

Jane took our breath away with all the clever ideas and little details she crammed into each and every inch of this very special project. If you haven't seen it yet we can highly recommend a visit HERE. Congratulations Jane on being our favourite for the 'A Gift From The Heart' challenge and winning the opportunity to be a Guest Designer here at Frilly and Funkie for a future challenge.

And has chosen a winner for our $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Our congratulations this time go to #19 Shelly Schmidt.

A huge thanks from the Frilly and Funkie team to everyone who took part in this challenge and congratulations again to our winners. Please email Linda at for the codes for the winner's badge and to give us your email address for the Guest Designer details (Jane) and for the gift certificate details (Shelly).

Our current challenge, 'A Vintage Holiday', runs through Tuesday, December 16th. We hope to see you entering this time around so that you too can be in with a chance to win. And remember, you can enter up to 10 challenges (including ours) and a maximum of 3 entries per person to our challenge.
