Challenge 103 - Girly, Glittery & Glam!


Hi Stampers! Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenges!

I would like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to Holly our amazing Design Team Coordinator. The last few months I have not made her job very easy with all of our personal family losses and never ending barrage of situations we had to deal with. Holly jumped right in and kept both our blogs running smoothly and fielded many questions and comments from our followers wondering what had happened with us. I can honestly say that without Holly we never would have made it through these rough times. There are not enough thank yous in the world that would cover how grateful I am to have such an amazing lady on our team! Thank you Holly!!

I have to also say a huge THANK YOU to all of our players, followers, fans and customers. I know these last few months there have been some delays in getting the prize codes out, emails that took forever to get answered, orders that were slow to ship and I am so sorry about that. This has been a really rough start to our year on the personal side of things, and we definitely fell behind more than once. We can't say how thankful we are to all of you for being patient with us and understanding our situation and for those that have stuck by us through these rougher times. It means more to us than words can ever say!

Before we get started with the challenge we also have some sad news. Laura Lunsford had to step down from the Design Team for some personal reasons. We wish Laura all the best with lots of hugs and hopes that when things settle down for her that she will be able to re-join our team :) We will miss you so much Laura! Thank you for all the amazing inspiration and stunning creations you made while on the team!

We had some really STUNNING projects last week!! Anything Goes is always such a HARD challenge to pick favorites so I am glad Mr. Random has the hard job of picking our winner! The winner of our challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps!
