Winners for Challenge #259 - Speed Humour

I hope you get a chance to go through all the entries in our last As You See It Challenge! It was so much fun because not only was it a speed stamping challenge, but it had a humour theme as well! I got a lot of chuckles looking at the entries and reading through the blog posts for them all! Thanks to all who braved the adrenaline rush of entering in a speed stamping challenge! It was the usual difficult job of picking winners but without further comment, here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Heather Heroldt

From all accounts, Eleanor Roosevelt was a witty woman, and we've always loved this quote of hers! Heather ingeniously came up with her own design of a teabag using vellum for her card, and must have had it all figured out in her head before she started, because she finished her card in 8 min and 33 sec! This is a great example of creativity under pressure!

Our Featured Artist is: Jules

Jules obviously has a great sense of humour and the Design Team loved her army of Grey Hares, looking like they all have some greater purpose in life! (Probably to bring us grief and a sense of passing time, right?)  We loved the little touches that she included such as the stitching around her image panel - very brave for a speed stamping challenge and the little pop of blue in the otherwise monotone grey palette. Jules completed her project in 9 min and 13 sec, well under the 10 minute deadline! Well done and so funny, Jules!
