Sponsor Spotlight on Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

Happy Thursday to you.  It's time for our sponsor spotlight on Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

Here's a bit about them.

"Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps. We started this store on April 1st, No fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha. I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...
I've been creating stamps for less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there were much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone... stitchy xoxox"

Up for grabs this week is a $10 gift certificate to the Stitchy Bear store.  Play along with us and then come back on Sunday to see if you are this week's randomly chosen winner for this great prize.

Now onto some eye candy from our designers using these fabulous images.

There is still time to play along this week.  We'll see you back here on Sunday when we announce this week's Top 3 and the winner of the $10 gift certificate to Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.  And a big thanks to Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps for sponsoring us this week!

Sponsor Spotlight on Karber Stamps

Happy Thursday to you.  I'm happy to tell you a bit more about this week's sponsor, Karber Stamps.
KARBER is a company created by Karla Barradas and Berenice Rendon. All began for passion to art and crafts, as friends we decided to join our different talents. In July 2010 that journey would lead us from hobby to a business and “Karber Digital Images” was created.  Recently, Karber Digital Images expanded to offer it's customers rubber stamps available through Sparkle Creations Store (http://www.shop-sparklecreationsrubberstamps.com/category/karber) and therefore,  have changed their name simply to Karber Stamps.  Visit Karber Stamps store at http://www.karberdigital.com/ or their blog at http://karbers.blogspot.com/.

This week's randomly chosen winner will win 2 digi images.

Now onto what our designers have for you using Karber's darling images.  And we'd also like to thank Ashley for being such a wonderful guest designer for the month of November.

There's still plenty of time to join us in this week's challenge which can be seen here. Thanks to those of you who have already played along.
