Challenge 99 - Easter or Spring Theme


Hi Stampers!  Welcome to the Love Rubberstamps Challenges!

Before this challenge starts I wanted to take a minute to say that I we appreciate  your patience with us over the last few months as we have struggled with some very difficult family situations. We are still running a bit behind, with getting orders shipped and emails answered, but I can assure you that we will be all caught up within the next 2 - 3 days. I have a minor outpatient surgery later this morning and then will be able to take the next 5 days to do nothing but catch up! Thank you so much for not giving up on us and for your support and patience through everything! Hopefully all the chaos and curve balls are behind us and after this morning we can get back on top of things and stay there for awhile :) 

Last week was a tough challenge and we know it, so thank you for those who played along with us. The winner of our Challenge with recieve a gift voucher to shop in our Store - Loves Rubberstamps!
