Artbymiran
I am the artist and owner of Artbymiran, I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I grew up with Korean and Japanese Manga. In my childhood, I loved drawing and making my own little stories.

I moved to Canada in my late 20s, where I reside with my husband.

I have worked on a variety of publications, ranging from children's to contemporary adult genres. I have contributed as an artist and colorist. I also worked as a graphic artist and layout designer for non-comic publications. For several years I was able to share my passion through teaching art to elementary school aged children. These experiences have influenced my recent artwork.
I am excited to share my art with this wonderful community of digi stampers and crafters.
I love to share my art. I love thinking of new images, and it’s so fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.
I would love to invite you to become a follower of my blog, I plan for many fabulous things to share with everyone artbymiran.blogspot.com.

This week's PRIZE is ...
Three (3) Digital Stamps of WINNER's Choice!

Caroline
My names Caroline. I have been crafting since I was about 10, and am now 51. Married to hubby for 31 years, have two grown up sons and 2 lovely grandchildren aged 5 and 4. I don't work now due to health problems with my back but I used to teach adult education classes in sugarcraft and crafts in general. I have made cards for about 25 years starting off with decoupage but only over the last 2 years have started using digi images and marker pens, which I am totally addicted too. I still use a lot of my crafts cd's but mainly for the backing papers now. I used to make and decorate wedding cakes and make all my own flowers for them but due to my bad back I have had to give up so cardmaking is my everyday life now. I can lock myself away in my craft room and totally loose myself in my cards for hours.

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 from Bugaboo Stamps is ...
Seven (7) Digital Stamps of WINNER's Choice!

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

Mags
My name is Margaret but everyone calls me Mags. I am married and have two lovely grown up daughters. I have always been creative but got into card making about five years ago and just love it. I am lucky enough to have my own crafty room and spend hours in there. Hubby likes to tell everyone that I spend all my time cutting and sticking. In reality I enjoy trying new techniques and will have a go at anything. I love blogging and have made lots of blogging friends. It is so nice to be part of such a lovely crafty community.
