SDC57: Outside the Box & Some Announcements

First off we want to start with a few announcements.  We currently have a DESIGN TEAM CALL going on-for more information read the details on this post.

This challenge we bid a few of our long term designers good bye.  Vicki Garrett and Willy Anderson have decided to step down from the team to pursue other avenues at this time.  We wish them the best of luck and will miss having them around and seeing their creations with Stampotique but I'm sure we'll all still be stalking their blogs.

We loved how everyone used the twin/mirror images in their creations this last challenge.  Great ideas!

Willy's top 3 favorites from the twin/mirror image challenge are:
(please e-mail for the Favorites Badge)

Love this black and white tag with that wonderful Single Tear stamp!
Love the long legs! The combination of b&w with the colours is fabulous.
So different and so wonderful! I'm still smiling...

The random winner for the $30 gift certificate is:
(please e-mail with SDC Winner in subject line)

This week our hostess Val has challenged us to think outside the box.  Create something out of the normal for you and show us what you have come up with.

Remember, only one entry per person to be eligible for the $30 Stampotique gift certificate and use your Stampotique stamps.

Here is what our design team has created that is out of the box:
