Hugs & Wishes Challenge is


Hi, my name is Annie and for as long as I can remember, I have always had my hands into some form of craft. Doodling always helped pass the time for me when I was younger and it's something that has carried over as I got older. Just about everything inspires me and influences my style or art. I enjoy drawing and creating for younger children and those entering their teen years. My style is very chibi (mini/child like in anime) oriented, and my characters are always whimsy and fun. I began Stamp Annie*Thing after numerous requests from customers that purchased my clip-art to make them into rubber stamps. Although we are fairly new to Clear Photopolymer Stamp world (producing), we have been in the crafting community online for over a decade. I hope that my drawings and stamps put a smile on your face and that you will be inspired to create with them!

This week's PRIZE is the Ooh La La Stamp Set!

Please join us as we Welcome Our Guest Designer this week!!


I started my adventure with card-making in late 2011, when I was looking for some inspiration for a wedding card for a good friend. I went onto YouTube, browsed through a few videos and… fell in love with heat and dry embossing, die-cutting, paper piecing, stamping, colouring… you name it! I decided to buy a few supplies to give it a go and…truth be told, never stopped buying them! We all know that feeling, don’t we? ;-)

I am still learning and developing my style. Sometimes I am all for CAS (Clean And Simple) cards, on other occasions I load my cards with embellishments and glitter. I love all things cute and girly, and am absolutely addicted to butterflies. Every now and then I like trying out shaped cards – they’re a lot of fun! My Achilles’ heel is making male cards – I am still hopeful that someday I will improve in that area! **

This is the first time I am participating in a challenge blog as a Guest Designer -  thank you for the opportunity, Jackie! If you want to see more of my work, please pop over to my blog, or find my Facebook Page "Handmade by Mirella" (new Likers are always welcome! J)
