Here are details of this challenge's wonderful sponsor... 

Di's Digi Stamps

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people. I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.  This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

One lucky winner will receive a $12 voucher to spend
 at Di’s Digi Stamps on-line Store.

Wondering if the design team is interested in hosting a challenge to make blank thank pet themed handmade cards to donate to Sending Paw Prints. Hosting a challenge also helps spread the word.

Sending Paw Prints supports our furry friends by collecting blank thank you pet themed handmade cards and donating them to animal shelters and rescue groups for them to write thank you messages to foster parents, donors and volunteers.

If you are interested in helping out please check out this link.

Please be sure to leave a link to the challenge post and I'll and your badge in the sidebar with a link back.

Thank you!
Karen Howard
