Wow, we have hit a milestone this week with our #200 sketch.  It seems only yesterday that Arlana started
A lot has happened over the past few years and we would like to express our gratitude to our fabulous Design Team and Sponsors.
We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for each one of you.
 And a special thanks to all the wonderful inspiration we receive each week from our players. 
 Thank You So Much !
Fabulous Sponsor this week is
The Doodle Garden

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!

Our Grand Prize Winner will receive: 5 single digis (sets not included) of winner’s choice
Now it's time to make the announcements of a winner and top three from last week's sponsor:
