Stripey Lunch Goodness and a Prize Contest!

I had a few friends over for lunch earlier this week, and in an uncharacteristic moment of poshness, I decided to make placecards and co-ordinating napkin rings.  I know, I know, very Martha Stewart, lol  Knowing that this weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Stripes" I decided to tie them to the theme and kill two birds with one stone, as it were.

I have a little contest for you too!  All you have to do is tell me the name of the person who designed my cutlery (hint - it's a Swedish person, wink wink).  Leave a comment here telling me that you've entered and then email me the answer (you can use the Contact Me button at the top of the page).  I will randomly pick a winner from the answers and will send them some crafty goodies!  Note - answers entered as comments will not be published and won't be entered in the draw, you must email me so that I can mail you back to get your address if you win!  The winner will be revealed next Monday at 5.00am UK time - good luck everyone! :)

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Love the colors and striped design of your place cards and napkin rings! I took a guess at the maker of the cutlery ... not too familiar with cutlery designers but ... so goes it. :)

I love the colours you have used on these pieces Dan and the inky spots are just right to finish off the effect.

Oh my! Place settings for Luncheon! How fabulous! Mind you, you don't need place settings when you dish out sandwiches to hungry children so I guess I'll not be as grand as you for a while! Hope your guests were very appreciative!
