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.

If you are the lucky winner of this challenge, you will receive $6 voucher to spend at Di’s Digi Stamps.   Click HERE to go to the store - it is really worth a visit.  They sell a large selection of gorgeous digital and clear stamps.  For more inspiration from Di's Digi Stamps, take a look at their Blog, Challenge Blog and Facebook page.
