On with the show.... with a word from our sponsor....

Hello stamping friends! Thank you for welcoming me into your home and hearts. I am a freehand graphic illustrator, joining you in the wonderful and exciting world of digi stamping! I thoroughly enjoy creating. 

My desire is to inspire hope and joy, with celebrations of love and inspiration at the heart of each drawing for you. I’m excited to share my delight of creativity through my stamp art with the wonderful folks at Whimsy.

We are always happy to have our current sponsor with us ... StampArt Design by Kathryne! Our random prize winner will receive their choice of 4 images from the SADK collection available at Whimsy Stamps ... wonderful! We always enjoy having  StampArt Design by Kathryne as a sponsor because we love her images and sentiments!

Here is a scripture to share, or for inspiration ....
