Good morning everyone! Saturday is here again already (where has this week gone?) I hope you are all looking forward to a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. Lets keep the fingers crossed for some good weather.

This week it's my (Amanda) turn to set the theme and I am basically banning rubber this week!! Yup no stamped images or sentiments this week girls. (eeek) I will allow anything digital ~ so digital images, digital stamps, computer generated sentiments. If you're not a fan of digital images though remember there are hundreds of techniques out there that aren't stamping........parchment, iris folding, tea bagging, stitching, painting, decoupage........and thats just what I can come up with this morning!!

So get those forgotten techniques out and dust them off and, of course, enjoy yourselves!! Check out the fabulous DT samples, there is a wealth of inspiration for you there! This week as a prize I am offering this Stamping Up "polka dots" large background stamp. It's rattling around in the box so I will make sure to pad it out a bit with a few ribbons etc.

I hope you'll play along us with this week's challenge. We are all looking forward to blog hopping to see your non stamped creations. :o)

Ooh! Some fab cards there from the DT!! My card-making time is going to be severely restricted this coming week, so may not be able to get to this one in time, either.. Have only just posted my card for Jules' sketch!! (Posted with that challenge.)

Have a great week!
