Kol's Notes and my mom, lol) both said choosing the winners were especially hard.
How the judging worked:
- Each judge came up with a list of 10 contestants, for each of the 10 prizes.
- Any contestant chosen by both judges instantly got a prize
- Any contestant ties were broken by me. This happened for four contestants. In the end, two contestants didn't make the top 10. This was my decision
Also, all contestants will coupon codes to two Etsy websites. My friends at Kitsch and Crossbones and The French Dog have graciously given these coupon codes so that everyone can enjoy these awesome handmade products.
So without further adieu, here are the winners:
Hallmark dog prize winner:
"A sledding Waffos goes" -- Kelly Seals
"Waffos enjoys playing in his pool in the Summer time. In the Winter he just likes to play with the pool as a toy . Then I decided to turn the pool into a " Sleigh Bed" for the Winter so he would enjoy his blankets & bed in there. I have had the 2 little German Shepherds stuffed critters & I thought Waffos would love to have some company in his sleigh day photo. The weather here in Texas in our town has been in the 70's so I had to "create' a Winter scene."
Hallmark other pet prize winner:
"Snoopy Christmas" -- Katrina Koski
Lionel Train winner:
"Countdown to Christmas" -- Kerry Swartwood
Big dog toy winner:
"Christmas bed" -- Jessica Gibson
"Snoopy's Christmas" -- Ann CargenRay
Bow tie from The French Dog winner:
"By the Fireplace" -- Jaime Grahek
"Hanukkah" -- Mary Johnson
"Kitty Christmas" -- Melissa LaPierre
Again, Congratulations to all the winners! I will be getting the coupon codes to all contestants this weekend!
