Challenge 72 - ANYTHING GOES!!

Hi Stampers! Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge!

First off I want to remind everyone that we on the search for our NOVEMBER Guest Designer - if you are interested just place GDT behind your name :)

We would like to introduce you to our OCTOBER GUEST DESIGNER who I know will blow you away with some inspiring projects over the next month! I know I have been a huge fan of her work ever since she first started playing along in some of our challenges! Please Welcome...

Hi I'm Laura Lunsford! I'm usually out and about as Crafty Lawyer.  I'm completely honored to be here as Guest Designer. The Design Team is so welcoming and supportive, not to mention talented, they may not be able to get rid of me!  Well, I'm a SAHM now to 3 kiddos, who have an 8 year age difference between them.  The youngest is 2.  All I can say is - nap time is a huge blessing around here.  

I am hopelessly addicted to card making and stamping.  When my little daughter asked me what my favorite color of the rainbow is, I responded "B02...oops I mean blue".   So yes, I love Copics as well! I am a relative newbie to card making, having come from the sewing/quilting world, but I find card makers so friendly and fun.  I see each card as a mini quilt, in a way!

I would love if you take a peek at my blog:  www.CraftyLawyerCreates.blogspot.com
and hope to see you at all the Challenges here at Loves Rubber Stamps this month! There is an exciting month planned for you around here - you'll see!

We had some completely AWESOME projects last week! We want to thank everyone who rose to our challenge and got creative with us! The winner of our challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps!

We have a very special GUEST SPONSOR this week!

The Winner will also receive a 2 Free Files of their choice from Shape EZ by TLC!

While creating cards that include coloring stamped images has been rewarding and relaxing for me, I have never been more fulfilled and creative than when I realized my true passion is in shaped cards and SVG files cut files.  Being limited only by my imagination and love to inspire others to do the same is my middle name.  Shape EZ templates by TLC w/Whimsy make your projects quick and "EZ" depending on you.   They include options, empowering you to choose to include extras such as windows, pockets, or even inserts of designer paper.  Shape EZ is an affordable product you can use over and over again.
