Love is in the Air - Valentines Preparations!!

Good Morning Stampers!
I have some sad news before I announce the winners of the last challenge and give details of the next challenge for Stampin' for the Weekend! 

"Vicki from Paperlicious Oasis has stepped down from the Stampin' Team as you may have read on her blog of late! She is looking to the future and spending more time with her gorgeous family! The girls and I would like to thank Vicki for all the hard work and effort she has put in since joining the team in June of last year! Take care hun and lots of Good Luck for the furture!!"

The last challenge was a HUGE success and I was loving seeing all the different cards you all made, esp those of you who flipped and rotated Fiona's Sketch! I'm sure she was thrilled at them all!! So thank you on her behalf for making the challenge a good one!
