As usual we have 2 fabulous sponsors offering some amazing prizes......2 images of your choice
from the fabulous All Dressed Up
Here's a short bio from Wendy, the creator of these sweet, sweet stamps:
Hi, I am Wendy Burns. I live in Nottingham Uk with my husband & 2 children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me uo to date with blogging & trends. I work predominantly within the textile children's wear market, fashion & interiors. I trained as a textile designer & although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn/sewn feel which I hope comes across in my work. Digital stamps is a new challenge for me & the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up team has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers.
