Challenge 51 - Anything Goes!

Hello and Welcome Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and to a new Challenge - Anything Goes! 

Thanks so much to Holly for getting the Post up! I have been at the hospital and the Doctor's Office pretty much all day long and this evening!

Before we get to the winners I want to give an extra special thanks to Jacquel Bowman who was our lovely April Guest Designer! Jackie - you did such a beautiful job with all of your projects and we so loved having you on the team! Thank you so much for all you did as a member and we hope to see lots more of your gorgeous work :)

We also want to introduce you to our MAY GUEST DESIGNER....

                                                     TRICIA TRAXLER

Hi!  I'm Tricia from Simply Stamping and I'm excited to join in the challenges this month at Love's Rubberstamps!  I started papercrafting about 20 years ago as a scrapbooking consultant for a well known company, but when I was introduced to cardmaking a few years later I left my scrapbooking behind and jumped in with both feet!  I love to make cards that are encouraging and uplifting.  Cards that will bring a little beauty and joy into someone's day.  I look forward to sharing with you this month!

Super excited to have Tricia joining us!

We LOVED seeing all the players last week! We have such a fun time visiting your blogs and seeing your projects up close! We had some completely AWESOME projects last week! I want to thank everyone who played! The winner of our April Showers Challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps!
