Just under 3 hours left for entries...

Leave no stone unturned! Grin

Judging may be a little late due to it being Mrs. Blokeh's birthday today.

Well, I never imagined how hard it could be to judge. Super efforts from all on a difficult challenge. I loved the hint of rainbow colours in Alison's amethyst and the composition on Selina's ring. I would have loved to see Andy's crystals in larger format, which I am sure would have done it more justice -- loved the colourful pebbles too. This week's winner, though, is Stuart who has shown off that rockery superbly.

Over to you, Stuart, for next week's challenge. Thank you all for entering and giving me a hard job to do.
