Cholula Cap Decorating Contest WINNERS!

You may remember me announcing a contest back in December being put on by Cholula Hot Sauce.  Basically, I was helping them put out the call for creativity and holiday spirit using your Cholula bottles.  You know the ones.   The kind with the awesome wooden caps?  The winners were to receive: (grand prize) Sur La Table Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 9-piece cookware set valued at $279.96 and the (runners-up) $25 Sur La Table Gift Cards.  A few days ago, Cholula asked me if I could pick the winners.  
Well...of course!  For some reason there weren't a whole lot of entries (timing...holidays!?), but all of the ones that were created were absolutely fun and fantastic!  And the great thing about having a small number of entries...for those who played along, at that EVERYBODY who created a cap will get a prize!  There is one grand prize winner and four runners-up (originally there were 12 runner-up prizes up for grabs).  So.  Without further ado, let me announce these talented winners and their creations!

Like I said, all of the entries were awesome, but overall, my absolute favorite was this cap submitted by Faith.  It looks to be intricately painted with a night-sky Christmas Eve theme.  Look at the detail...the fabulous!  Congrats Faith, you've won the Sur La Table Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 9-piece cookware set!
Grand Prize Winner of Cholula Cap Decorating Contest
And the four runners-up with a fun pom-pom Santa (Sandy), a message for the season (Nichole), some smoochable mistletoe (Diane), and some holiday ornaments I'd love to hang on my tree (Jessica) will all receive a $25 Sur La Table Gift Card.  
Runners-Up in the Cholula Cap Decorating Contest
Congrats to everybody...and thanks for your thoughtful entries.  You will be receiving an email from the lovely people at Cholula Hot Sauce to confirm your win and arrange for the delivery of your prizes.

Thanks to Cholula for making me a partner in this event.  You can check them out on Facebook, their website, twitter...or at a store near you!
