Week 716 - Winner & Top 5 Passionista

Hello again friends; we hope you’ve had a great day so far.  We’re back to announce our lucky Winner and Top 5 Passionista for last week’s ‘occasions other than birthday' challenge.  Thank you for all your lovely entries; as always the DT had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your gorgeous creations.  I’ll be announcing Marlene's Top 5 Passionista in a moment but firstly let’s find out who our lucky winner is!

For last week’s challenge we were sponsored by Dr Digi's House of Stamps and they offered one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.  As always we used and he chose:

No. 17

Congratulations Pam, what an adorable card.  Your image is gorgeous and your colouring is fantastic.  Please email us at with your choice of images and we will arrange for them to be sent to you.  We hope you will proudly display our winners badge on your blog:

Now onto the Top 5 Passionista and Marlene had a wonderful time visiting your blogs and seeing your amazing creations.  It was a really tough decision but after much deliberation here are her favourite 5:
