April Winners and Some Sad News

Hello all,

Firstly apologies for the delay in posting last months winners, it has all been a bit hectic here.

So without further ado here are the April winners for the monochrome challenge.

1st Prize - 37- InkyPinkyCraft
Top Three

1 - 9, Debbi Taylor
2 - 65, Cumbrian Lass
3 -40, Tiggertastic

Well done to you all. Don't forget to take your Blinkies from the side bar. Winner please email using the button on the side bar and we will sort your prize for you.

And now on to the sad news............it is with regret that Shell and I have decided to close the blog, we are not sure at this stage how permanent this move is but it is certainly for the foreseeable future.

I (Patsi) have got too much on with study and work to give the blog the attention it deserves and so Shell has been running it single handedly for the past 6 months or so.  Shell now has realised a long held dream and has a shop giving her all the card and keepsake orders she can handle and she has no time for anything else understandably.  Who know where this will lead for her and we are all very proud of her!!

Anyway all this means is that we are having to say goodbye to our beloved blog and our design team.

It just remains for me to thank Shell for everything she has done for me, the DT for being absolutely wonderful and you all for joining our challenges and making our blog the success it was.

I wish you all well, and hope to see you all again in craft land.

Patsi and Shell

About Kenny.....I wielded a mean crayon in my early days growing up in the Bronx, but made the quantum leap to the Mac at my first art studio job in 1990, and have been working as a digital artist ever since. In addition to the digi stamps and forthcoming downloadable content available here at KennyKdownloads.com, much of my other existing work is available for personal and commercial licensing; check out the Licensing section atKennyK.com for more info on my existing properties - and feel free to browse the rest of the site, where tons of my illustration and animation work are on display!

About Elena.....My name is Elena (a.k.a "Elena K" or "Lady K") and I am the feminine touch of KennyKdownloads.com. I have been producing events and party planning for over 6 years in NYC and am a crafter at heart - I love anything creative, both handmade and digitally produced. Kenny and I have been looking forward to collaborating on a project together since we got married, and we are finally moving on it now with KennyKdownloads.com! While Kenny continually cranks away producing his amazing art, I'll be here on the site to keep things running smoothly, as Kenny pops in when time allows.

Here's some Inspiration from our design team

So lets share some LOVE around blogland....
Add your entry into mr linky and have fun...
