Bugaboo Stamps
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay As if raising five children in the  frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell  decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of  papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to  sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of  the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New  Releases and Freebies every week!    If your taste runs to rubber (and  you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally  Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly  challenges at Catch the Bug.

This week's PRIZE is ...
Seven (7) Digital Images of WINNER's Choice!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

Leeann
My name is Leeann and I am from Philadelphia until about 4 years ago when we moved about 60 miles west to the small town of Birdsboro, PA.   I have 3 incredible children ages 12 to 22 and a beautiful 19 month old grandson.   I am  blessed to have the most supportive family who encourages me in everything I do, including playing in what was once our dining room but is now craft room!   I have dabbled in some different types of crafts but none have really captured my heart like card making.  I can sit and color digital stamps for hours, with the added bonus of turning them into cards that can make someone else smile.  In December 2012, my blog finally went live and I have been enjoying participating in challenges ever since.  I am grateful for all the inspiration provided to me by the themes, the encouragement of design teams and visitors and inspiration from  the entire card making and crafting community.

Do you have a sense of humor? Are you looking for a cute stamp? Then, we are the company for you! QKR Stampede is the somewhat cute somewhat quirky rubber and digital stamp company. We Showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as unmounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps! If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, Don't miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps,  Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

Wings & Willows
Hello, I'm Rebecca from Wings & Willows. I am a happy wife and mama to 3 sweet girls. The hubby and I live in the country along with an assortment of animals. In my small amount of spare time, I love to blog about our life and share some new (and free) stamps that I've created. (As well as fill you in on sales in the shop!) My digital stamps definitely are a reflection of the day-to-day things that go on at home. I've been doodling for the past 30-ish years, so it's great to share my art with friends! In addition to that, I paint fingerprint trees. Just think of them as a fun and unique alternative to guest books. I would love for you to take a peek at my shops. (Or drop a line in my blog! I love to hear from you!) Thanks! Becca  :)

Offering One (1) $15.00 Gift Certificate to the store!



TIME for some Color Inspiration ...
 


Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

I live in Wisconsin and am married to a sweet man who is my biggest fan and a great encourager. I’m very blessed. In 1997, I was introduced to rubber stamps and was hooked. I joined a rubber stamp company as a demonstrator in 2004, which ended in 2011 when they went out of business. Since then, I discovered digital images and fell in love once again. So many stamp companies, so little time - LOL!

I keep a long list of birthdays, anniversaries and try to send cards for major holidays too. Plus, I started a card ministry at my church 3 years ago. I send monthly cards to the homebound, a little bit of encouragement to those who may not have a lot of family left. Seems like I’m always making a card for someone.  :D
