Pick 2 at Love to Create

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend has been wonderful and that you´ve able to do some crafting as well. I´ve had a very relaxing weekend with lots of time for crafting and I have enjoyed every minute of it! Even my two cats have been participating in my crafting, not that I find it so much helpful lol, but it´s nice to have some company.

I also want to welcome you to a new week with a fabulous challenge at Love to Create! For this week we want you to "Pick 2 of these - die cuts, ribbon, twine, pearls, distressing or sentiment".

Our fabulous sponsors this week are:

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.

Offering a fabulous prize of 7 digis! 


StampArt Design by Kathryne© 

Hello stamping friends! Thank you for welcoming me into your home and hearts. I am a freehand graphic illustrator, embarking on an exciting new adventure with you in the world of digi stamping! 

My work is distributed nationally, and beyond with my designs printed on clothing, jewellery, posters, mounted glass etching and stationery. Hallmark carried a complete line of my Northern Wildlife Exposures embossed cards and note pads. I’ve also developed a children’s Christian activity book used in Sunday school programs and mission trips throughout the world. Additionally, my repertoire includes published artwork and poetry with an award-winning design for a calendar with the Children’s Aid Society and a logo used for the National Scout Jamboree.
I thoroughly enjoy creating. My desire is to inspire hope and joy, with celebrations of love and inspiration at the heart of each drawing for you. I’m excited to share my delight of creativity through my stamp art with the wonderful folks at Whimsy. StampArt Design by Kathryne©
StampArt Design by Kathryne© is a digital stamp collection created exclusively for Whimsy Stamps, showcasing a range of styles from delightful animated drawings to captivating wildlife portrayals. With this variety, you can choose the perfect image for any project!

Offering a Prize of 5 images of winner's choice!
