SDC#1 Create a Love Themed Card

I am SO excited to be the first Hostess in the Stampotique Designers Challenge!!! The designers, along with Carol have been working diligently behind the scenes to bring you this fun forum where you will see a lot of great ideas for Stampotique images as well as the chance to Challenge yourself and to try some new techniques, themes and sketches! In addition you can win some Stampotique Swag just for playing along!

A BIG thanks to Kim Howard for designing our blog, banner and blinkie! Please feel free to add it to your sidebar! We'd love to have your support and of course want you to play along!

Just a little about the Blog! Each of the very talented design team will take turns hosting challenges, which will be held twice a month! You have the chance to play along as long as you link your creation by the Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. est prior to the next challenge. The first challenge of the month will allow you to use any stamps or images, the second challenge, will be Stampotique exclusive. A winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries and will be announced at the next challenge.


Now for our first challenge!!!! We'd love to see you create a Love themed card! I know that Valentine's have passed, but it is with much love for Carol, Jim and Stampotique that we bring you this blog! If you are uploading to SCS or another site, please use SDC1 as your keyword.
One participant will be randomly selected for a $15.00 Gift Certificate to Shop at Stampotique!


I'm trying to upload Mr. Linky! If you see it, please add in, but if you don't please post a link in the comments sections, so that we can see your fabby creations!


And now, without further adieu, I present to you the Stampotique Design Team creations !!!!
