Challenge #98 ~ 2nd Blogaversary

Hello and welcome to the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog for our 2nd Blogaversary.  Next During this challenge we are being sponsored by 5 wonderful companies...

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.

Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy

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!

Hi my name is Stacy Walker and I am the owner operator of The Crafting Boutique.  I live in a little town in Maine called Swanville with my two cats, Madeline & Mitzy.  It was my love of crafting and necessity that made me decide to create this shop. 

At The Crafting Boutique you will find digital images, handmade items such as embellishments, jewelry, gifts, and more.  I can also do special orders. If you see something that you would like to have but it isn’t quite right contact me and I will let you know if it is possible.

I would love for you to stop by, take a look and let me know what you think.  You can contact me at the.crafting.boutique@gmail.com

This week America celebrates its birthday as well so we though that it would be fitting to make our theme for this challenge...

2 winners will be chosen from all of the cards and projects that are entered

2 winners will be chosen from all of the entries that use an image from one of the sponsors from this challenge.  If you use an image from one of the sponsors and want to be put into the drawing for one of these prizes put a # beside your name when you link your card or project.
