Sponsor Spotlight on Karber Stamps

Welcome Lollipop Crafts fans! Alanna here bringing you some more information on our lovely sponsor, Karber Stamps.  This week's randomly chosen winner will receive 2 digital images of his/her choice. And here's a bit about them.

"KARBER is a company created by Karla Barradas and Berenice Rendon. All began for passion to art and crafts, as friends we decided to join our different talents. In July 2010 that journey would lead us from hobby to a business and “Karber Digital Images” was created.  Recently, Karber Digital Images expanded to offer it's customers rubber stamps available through Sparkle Creations Store (http://www.shop-sparklecreationsrubberstamps.com/category/karber) and therefore,  have changed their name simply to Karber Stamps.  Visit Karber Stamps store at http://www.karberdigital.com/ or their blog at http://karbers.blogspot.com/.  

And here are some creations using these darling images.

Thanks to all who have played along so far in this week's Love challenge.  You all are so creative.  Make sure to come back on Sunday for our winner's post to see if you are the winner of the 2 digital images from Karber Stamps or have been chosen as our Top 3 for the week.
