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
