PTT #31 Anything Goes!

Well, we've had a very nerve-wracking week or so here in Maryland...first we had what I believe was a tornado blow through on Friday evening, then on Tuesday, we had a pretty major earthquake- a 5.8- that shook us up pretty badly, and then over the weekend we had to deal with hurricane Irene. All in all we faired well through all of this, thankfully. I'm sure hoping this week will be much quieter and less stessful!

OK- on to Party Time Tuesday's challenge for this's an "Anything Goes" week
we have some really awesome sponsors! Check 'em out!

WoodWare USA

Party Time Tuesday's very own NANCY! She is providing a stamp set from WoodWare USA. Woodware USA, LLC is a US-based retail subsidiary of Woodware Craft Collection of the UK. It is our goal to offer creative and fun craft products through our website and distributors. The name Woodware results from the fact that the initial product offering by Woodware Craft Collection was wooden toys. Then they expanded into wooden craft items and eventually wood mounted rubber stamps. Over the years they have expanded their product mix to include all kinds of crafting products from many suppliers and manufacturers.

Karen's Doodles
Here's a little background information on Karen:

I have been drawing all of my life. When I was 19, I started an animation studio with a friend from college. We created scoreboard animations for all the Major League Baseball teams as well as the Super Bowl and the Olympics In 1989 I started my own animation studio. We created animation for the Feature Film "Fern Gully The Last Rainforest". We also animated a Christmas Special "The Wish That changed Christmas" and a video featuring Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. For the past 20 years I have had the pleasure of creating animations for Disney, Fisher Price and Mattel and bringing their characters to life. In 2006 I decided to bring my own characters to life with my first Children's Book, "Oink Finds an Egg". This year I am celebrating 50 years as a doodler and I look forward to sharing my original drawings with crafters through "Karen's Doodles".

She creates the cutest rubber stamps and digi-images. Make sure you check them out here. Winner of this challenge chooses 3 digis of your choice!
