Winner and Top 3

Hello! It's the weekend and it's winners time!
As you will have seen in our challenge post yesterday, we're changing things around a bit here at Crafty Catz as we felt that, whilst having 1 winner decided by random number generated made it fair on everyone, it meant that we often didn't get to share some of our favourite cards each week.
So from this week, every Saturday we will announce our challange winner (or winners depending on the number of sponsers) and our top 3 choices - we even have a new badge for you to display proudly on your blogs if you're chosen!
So without further ado, onward with the winners.
Our prize winner this week is......number 26................Bligu

Congratulations! such a gorgeous creation. Will you please contact Carol at to arrange your prize
And now for our very first Crafty Catz Top 3, in no particular order are:


Congratulations! Please don't forget to grab your badge for your blog!

Thanks for all your entries , we had a wonderful time visiting you all and don't forget to check out this week's challenge of Dies and Punches.

Margy has taken the store to new heights and the store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. In addition, one of our own South African rubber stamp companies granted us permission for one range of rubber stamps to be converted into digistamp images.
