This week we want to pay respect to all those rubber stamps in your stash, this week is all about them!

    PIO #15 CHALLENGE - Say it in Style

    Hi everyone! I just realize I didn't posted the winners for FEB on the first week of March. I will do that during this week.
    This week we have a brand new sponsor, which I am sure it's going to make you and your projects shine!

    Pizzazz Aplenty began with only a bit of bling and some ribbon, but over the past few months, we've added so much more. . . from cardstock to cellophane bags, as well as a variety of embellishments for your cardmaking or scrapbooking projects. Including charms, stick pins, brads, buttons, cords, twines, laces, lots of ribbon, and over 20 choices of colors in our flatback pearls and rhinestones. In the next couple of weeks, teardrop pearls will be a new addition, and button stick pins with 4 buttonholes. Please stop by and take a look at check out the store: Pizzazz Aplenty

    A lucky winner will receive: (please note that if an item where to be out of stock a similar item will replace it)
    This is what I propose as a prize (for April):
    One package each of: 3mm, 4mm Red flatback Pearls
    One package each of: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm Dark Cranberry flatback Pearls
    One package each of: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm Royal Blue flatback Rhinestones
    One package (5 yards) Cotton Candy Dream String
    One Gel Picker
    Value of $10.40

    Remember, there's no such thing, as too much bling! And now let's see how the team played with this week's challenge: Say it in style. The challenge this week is to have your saying sparkle with bling, pearls, rhinestones or any type of bling galore! Show us your stylish projects. If you are making any other project that is not a card then make the title or main words look stylish!
