First snow brings thoughts of spring... :)

A belated Happy New Year to you all! I have decided that 2016 is going to be a healing, peaceful, low key year for me. There has been a lot that has gone on over the past couple of years and life became way out of sync with what I had pictured. 

I have always loved paper crafting and blogging and did not want to give this world up entirely so I was delighted to be welcomed by Kylie to stay on as Sponsor Coordinator at Addicted to Stamps and More. This means I will take care of things behind the scenes with our wonderful sponsors but I will still be making a card each week to share. 

I am hoping to be able to get to a place where I have time to play along with many more of my favourite challenges but for now here I am, and loving that I can still sneak away for a little bit each week to create with this fabulous team. 

Now on to this week's post...  

Each week at Addicted to Stamps and More we have a fun challenge to help bring out your creativity! This week we have our Photo Inspiration Challenge going on!!! So break out your supplies, get creative and show us what you got :)

This week we are being sponsored by talented Designers over at Sami Stamps. You should really pop over and check out the fabulous images they have to share. We always have so much fun working with their delightful digitals!

Hello! I’m so happy to be here as a Sponsor for  Craft Your Passion Challenges! Sami Stamps provides a variety of high quality Digital Stamps in both JPEG and PNG formats.  I hope you enjoy crafting with Sami Stamps images as much as I enjoy illustrating them!
