{FEBRUARY WINNERS}


We've got FEBRUARY winners and top picks to announce -- and there are plenty of them! Winners of the Love TAGplorations blog hop & linky party + CUTplorations mini release hop are also in this post.

An important note about our winners post: all winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one) published on the 9th or 10th of the following month. All winners have up to 10 days to claim their prizes. If you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar. 

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Monday, March 20. Prizes not claimed by March 20 will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away over $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually (which would involve searching for email addresses). I also want to be fair to those who claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to sheryruss@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations February (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations February Winner - CAS Card Challenge"

Or if a blog hop winner:
"Winner - name of the blog hop here"
e.g., "Winner - Love TAGplorations"

That's it for this post. If you are one of the winners, please wait up to 3 days for me to acknowledge your email. If you don't hear back from me after 3 days, please re-send your email.

We have a few things up our sleeves. For one, the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is just around the corner. STAMPlorations will be one of the super sponsors again. We've got several brand new coffee-themed stamps and dies that are perfect for spring. The STAMPlorations girls will soon be sharing their creations that showcase these new products so keep your eyes peeled. And next week, I'll share previews of our new products. (Although you can already check them out in the store + score some discounts.)

And for another...well, I'll share when we're a bit closer to the date -- but if you're so ready for spring, you'll be happy to know that we've got a spring-themed blog hop and linky party that will last the whole month of April (with tons of prizes!), not to mention new stamps and dies that are just perfect for spring! :o)

Happy weekend...and happy stamping!
