Winners and DT Favorites: Challenge No. 42

Welcome, one and all! We had a fantastic turnout with... WOW... 212 entries last week! That blows my mind! lol
I need to let you into my corner of the world for just a second. I've got so much life going on right now! I'm sure you've all been there at one time or other. We moved my adult son with Aspberger Syndrome out of the home weekend of the 13th and what a battle! He kinda didn't want to go! I did and I didn't. Living with leukemia makes me want to know before I get sicker if he's able to care for himself so I pushed him out the door... kicking and screaming... the both of us! Ha! Just as I was clearing out the empty bedroom to make room for my new craft room... my adult daughter calls to tell me she wants to come home! I kinda wanted to say NO! lol But... as a mom... I just couldn't! In the middle of all this... my painful joints have been bothering me something fierce. I think it's because I work in an IGLOO with a bunch of Eskimo men! I hope that's not derogatory. I don't mean it to be. But the men keep the office at a cool 68 degrees! I am NOT exaggerating... well... maybe a little... but it makes for painful hands. I finally was able to get an MD to prescribe something for the pain... but it knocks me out cold! I've been so lax in my duties... it's a wonder my Dream Team have not abandoned me! But it just goes to show... what a Dream Team they are! They all pull together without me and get my job done for me! I am so grateful for them. Not a drama queen in the midst of them and I am ssooo grateful for that! :) Anyway, please forgive my silence and absence... it can only get better! I like to think so anyway! :)
But now... to get to the business at hand... we use Random.org to pick our winners... otherwise... we'd be at this for months! Ha! Our sponsors last week were Bugaboo Stamps with SEVEN digis for ONE lucky winner and My Whimsical Little World offering TWO digis for a second winner!
For Bugaboo Stamps, Random.org chose:
Please put IDCB Winner No. 42 - Bugaboo in the subject line.
For My Whimsical Little World, Random.org chose:
Please put IDCB Winner No. 42 - MWLW in the subject line.
Congratulations! Please send an email to inspirationdestinationcb@gmail.com within 7 days. We will provide you with info on how to collect your prize. Help me out a little, please. Since there are weeks when we have more than one sponsor, I get so confused when someone emails me with the subject line 'Winner'! Ssooo, please, being specific helps so much! :) Be sure to grab our badge from the right side bar to proudly display on your personal blog! Thank you so much for playing along with Inspiration Destination!
