Pinworthy winners for Rustic Charm challenge

Hello all and welcome to our pinworthy winners of last month's challenge, which was Rustic Charm.

We had many fabulous entries, and like always, it is so hard to narrow our winners down to just three, but needs must, so after due consideration, these are the entries the creative guides have chosen in no particular order:
We loved this entry for it's originality, the materials used and the wonderful theme of finding yourself. I think we all need to find the angel within our selves.

She was one of our winners last month already, but we so loved her entry, paying tribute to her grandmother, that we could not help but choose her again.

And last but not least
A Steampunk mushroom house for a glue gun. Not only does this entry ooze rustic charm, but we loved its functionality, and sheer cleverness of design.

So once again, thank you to all of you who entered our challenge and shared your creativity and congratulations to our winners.
I will send you your pinworthy badges shortly and we will share your fabulous creation on our dedicated Pinterest board.

Our latest challenge Watercolour Wonders  is in full swing at the moment, so we hope you will all join us for that one too, and of course don't forget to come back next week to see Deb's tutorial for her entry to that challenge!

Meanwhile, happy crafting and thank you for joining us here today!
