THE DOODLE GARDEN owned by Jennifer Nilsson.

Here is just a little bit about Jenn so that you can get to know her and her shop a little better.

HI all!
Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about the gal behind The Doodle Garden digis!

I'm Jennifer L Nilsson (but please, call me Jenn or Jenna!). And I am blessed to be able to work full-time from home as a licensed artist.

I enjoy creating bright whimsical pieces for manufacturers, but also wanted to be able to offer something to those who like to craft. So I have begun my journey with digistamp designs with my Etsy shop: The Doodle Garden.

It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!

I'm certain you will love Jenn's images.  Be sure to check out her store here.  She also has a fabulous blog where you can see her new creations.

 Grand Prize Winner for this week's sketch,
 you will win 
5 single digis of your choice 
(sets not included) from The Doodle Garden.  
Thanks, Jenn, for such a generous prize to our winner.

Here is our sketch for this week!  
Be sure to follow the rules below!
This sketch is so adorable!  
I think you will agree when you see all 
the inspiration from our DT!

Now I know you are just waiting to see what the SSW DT have created with their 
Doodle Garden Images!
