Mt Ruapehu from the road, I've seen the
 brown tussock by the road side some
seasons on a heavy snowfall down to the
roadside and boys making snowballs and
Mt Tongariro which my husband and son
 crossed in early March which had no
snow then.
 Turoa Ski Field on the South Side of the

Digi Doodle Shop

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.
