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!!

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.
