Hi Stampers! Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge!
I apologize for not getting the Design Team Favorite pics posted this week. As I mentioned last week, my Grandma had breast cancer surgery and was initially doing pretty good. After she went home she had some pretty bad days and I had to go and bring her to our house to care for her until she could get some of her strength back. I had to take a few days off my other job to care for her and with everything going on, I didn't get the email sent to the design team to chose. I will be doing that as I am done with this post!! I also apologize if you have emailed me in the last few days, I haven't had a chance to get on and respond so I will be going through those too! It will be nice when things settle down and life gets back to normal, but in the mean time I really appreciate everyone's patience! :)
Last week's challenge was the last to try out for the April Guest Designer Spot! We will be contacting the winner sometime this week. If you would like to try out for the May GDT position just place GDT behind your name in your entry :)
We had some AMAZING projects last week! I want to thank everyone who played! We love seeing all of your creative takes on our challenges! The winner of our Shades of Green - St Patrick's Day challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps!
