Our Fabulous Sponsor for this weeks
 Anything Goes / Fall Colors

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 Stamps
 of WINNER's Choice!

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

I am married to William and have two lovely boys. I've been crafting ever since I can remember holding a pen, knitting needles and a needle and thread. My mother was a keen crafter and an amazing seamstress and chef who taught all of us girls to knit sew, crochet and cook and couldn't stand us sitting around with idle hands. I'm very passionate about most crafts from Cross Stitch to Card Making and Scrapbooking with some Sewing and Bead Work thrown in. I've been card making now for five years and made some wonderful blogging friends over this period. I can’t believe the amazing talent there is and how many new techniques and tools are so prominent today. If I'm not at home I'm sometimes at the office with my Hubby otherwise I'm on the road, travelling back an fourths to my son's schools and on the sports fields with the boys or watching them swim and play tennis or soccer. Weekends and holidays are a very precious time for me with my family. Otherwise you could find us at our beach house and out on the boat or in my craft room making cards or enjoying the company of my friends and family over dinner and a glass of wine.
