STAMP SOMETHING CHALLENGE - NO STAMPING ALLOWED

Happy Friday All!!! Whew!!! This week was hard getting back into the swing of things - LOL! But, we made it and now the weekend is here - whoohoo!! We have no plans except to relax and spend some time together, which is always nice! So, today is the first Stamp Something Challenge of the Year and guess what? NO STAMPING ALLOWED - heehee!!! Yep, that's right, make something that involves NO stamping!! The challenge this week is sponsored by Pamela at Firecracker Designs. Thanks Pamela for sponsoring us!!! Now, I figured this would be easy, but once I sat down to do this, I thought, huh! What to do? So, I turned to my rub-ons and went from there!! A few flower punches, some pretty dp, hardware, ribbon, and hey, all done - LOL! I even through some buttons into the mix "wink". Make sure you go and check out what the rest of the DT gals did, you will be glad to see such yummy eye candy!!! And, why not have a go at this? But, make sure you upload your take on the challenge to the site and get entered in for the RAK AND so we can see what you come up with!!! Can't wait to see them! Have a fantabulous weekend all!
