Week 31: RED

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Hearts, Flowers, Love, Chocolate...

It's Valentine's Day week and we're betting many are thinking about such things!  Red seems to go along with this particular holiday, but perhaps it makes you think of other things too!  We're anxious to find out how you interpret this bold color!

We thought it only appropriate to have at least a little cuteness added to this week's challenge!  What better company to sponsor us than 2 Cute Ink!

2 Cute Ink digital stamps are cute and whimsical designs illustrated by Heidi Schwoerer.
Heidi also licenses her artwork for clear stamps, rubber stamps and embroidery!
You can visit her website at www.2cuteink.com for updates and info.

Be sure and check out all Heidi's adorable digital images in her digital shop PLUS she now has clear stamp sets and rubber stamps available!

This week's winner will be awarded 3 free digital stamps of their choice from the 2 Cute Ink digital shop!

Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer have created for inspiration this week!  Some of the design team have used 2 Cute Ink images!
