Who is offering our featured tipper an amazing book


---------------------------------------------------------
1 prize of 5 digi stamps of your choice from


I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people. I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.



This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue.

One day we got an unexpected email saying that the store was shutting down and when we went to the store, poof it was gone...So, after the dust cleared and several emails later, Stitchy Bear Stamps was born. We gathered all the other creator's from the original store and away we went. It has been quite a learning experience but none the less we are growing everyday with new fabulous creators. I have always believed when God closes one door another Bigger and Better one opens ;)... Thank you all who have read our little story, I do hope you enjoyed ;) stitchy aka stitchy stamps."
