The Drunken Stampers Lounge is Closed

This is a hard post for us to write, but after much talking (and a bottle glass or 2 of wine each) Spike and I have decided to close down the Drunken Stampers Challenges.  Life has gotten very busy for the both of us and we need the time to spend with our families and to take care of ourselves. We started DS as a way to challenge each other and have fun while living so far apart, little did we think we would get to have an amazing design team and have so much fun in the process. Thank you to everyone who has played along with us over the years and to a very  talented design team that has been so helpful with everything and always willing to help out when needed without you we would not have been around as long as we have been. It has been an amazing 4 years and we have had a wonderful time, but it is time to close the lounge doors.
