Week 201: SUNSHINE


It's guaranteed to be sunny this week!  Just take a look at the cue word and you can't help but smile, can you?!

We're welcoming a brand new sponsor too!  You're going to love Rubber Dance Stamps!

Rubber Dance is an independent rubber stamp company in Norway, owned by Bibi Lindahl who's been making stamps since 1999. Bibi's stamps are mostly of the weird and artsy style, but you'll also find many nature stamps as well as funny and uplifting sentiments. The two active Rubber Dance blogs are filled with artwork and tutorials by Bibi and her talented Design Team, and they also run a challenge every 1st of the month.
