Floral Alphabet
Welcome to The Stampsmith Challenge!  Today we have some highlights to share from the fabulous entries sent in for the Starring Role challenge - as well as the winner of the draw and, of course, the new challenge!

The Stampsmith has so many images of famous stars and your projects certainly made wonderful use of them! As always, you've made it incredibly difficult to choose just a few highlights, but we've managed to pick just a few :) Ladies, please email Valerie for our featured badge for your sidebar!

We are extremely pleased to congratulate #4 - Alison (Craftytrog) at Craftytrog's Inky Adventures who won the random draw for the Stampsmith gift certificate! Please contact Valerie for all of the details!

And now for Challenge #15: 
Birthday Theme  
- Using Any Stamps
- And a Bonus!!

This week, Valerie (our birthday girl!!) challenges us to create a project with a Birthday Theme! This is the first of the month, so you are welcome to use stamps from any company... of course, if you have Stampsmith stamps, we'd love to see your inspiration with them :)

As a bonus, this week we are also going to give you a chance to have your name entered multiple times in the draw! If you mention our challenge to your stamping friends and they participate in our challenge, you will each get an extra chance to win the draw! All they have to do is link to your blog and our blog in their writeup!!  So be sure to spread the word to play along!

The design team has some great inspiration to help jumpstart your creativity!
