The Last Arty Girlz Challenge ~ 'Stamping'

The very first Arty Girlz challenge was 'Stamping' so we have chosen that as our theme to end on

This will be the last challenge on Arty Girlz for the time being, we have both LOVED setting challenges for you every Tuesday but at the moment we are very busy with real life.

This blog will not be deleted, it will remain active as there is lots of inspiration still to be had from the samplers and challenges, who knows one day we might surprise you all and start it up again but for the time being this will be the last Arty Girlz challenge.

We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making this such an enjoyable experience for us, we have made so many new friends along the way and we hope that you will continue to visit our personal blogs as we will still be posting on those.

Here's our stamping creations
