Pile It On #5 - Just Because

Thanks for joining us at Pile It On! This week's theme is a good one for all us challenge fans: Just Because. Can't wait to see your projects!

We only have two rules: Be sure your project follows our theme, and pile on the challenges! The more the better!

The winner of this week's challenge will receive 2 digi stamps of their choice from Stamp-N-Doodle!

I have always loved to doodle, so to speak, and when I found myself with more time on my hands after my husband and I retired to country living and our children were off on their own, I turned my passion into a business. I started Stamp-N-Doodle with only rubber stamps, tried my hand at Digital Stamping and fell in love with it and quickly added it to my business. Now I offer rubber, digital stamps, and recently added CardsUprint, complete downloadable card kits. Who knows what is next?
-Lynne Crosskill, Owner & Illustrator

Pile It On #3: Fuzzy Friends

This week, we're asking you to include the theme "Fuzzy Friends" on your challenge cards. We're sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads:

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 lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to Di's online store! You have until January 21st to submit your project, following our rules as listed on the sidebar. Can't wait to see your creations!
