Grandparent's Day Challenge

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!

Yours or Mine Paper Crafts
Hello All! My name is Mei. I have only been cardmaking for about 2 years but my tremendous love for it has inspired me to open up my very own online store! Yours or Mine Paper Crafts is a place where you can purchase supplies to create your own projects, or view my gallery for inspiration! We carry brands like ... The Greeting Farm, Penny Black, Spellbinders and many more! All of the brands and products we carry are items I have personally used for my own projects, and I feel are awesome products that you would like as well. It is my pleasure to sponsor this week's challenge at Love to Create with a $10 voucher to my store.

This week's PRIZE is ...
$10.00 Gift Certificate to Your's or Mine Paper Crafts On-line Store!

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

Christine a/k/a Crafty Chris

Hi, my name is Christine a/k/a Crafty Chris from Northern Ireland. I have been making cards since 2008 after watching Create and Craft. It is definitely an addiction, and thankfully a understanding husband who indulges my crafty needs. I enjoy entering in the different challenges and it's such a thrill to win or be in the top 3 - it gives you a great boost, and my family are a great support, and they always luv my cards. I also enjoy knitting, quilting, and occasionally jewelry making. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and enjoy my gardening.
