For this week's challenge, I would like to welcome back the super fun Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor! 
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 

 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Our challenge for you this week is Spring Is On The Way and my team has some gorgeous spring creations for you.  Bugaboo Stamps have provided images for my team to use as well as 4 images for one lucky winner!

As last week was A Day For Daisies last challenge sponsoring us, it is the same this week for Sami Stamps!  I would like to send a big shout out to Sami for sponsoring us over the last few years and wish you all the very best! 

Our challenge this week is Lots of Green.  St Patrick's Day is right around the corner so I thought we could break out the green for this week's challenge.  As I mentioned our lovely sponsor is Sami Stamps and they have provided gorgeous images for my team to create with as well as a $12 gift certificate to one lucky person who plays along with us AND follows us so they know if they are a winner:-)

Before I get too far, I would like to welcome Miranda Taylor to our team.  Here's a little bit about her:  Hello, my name is Miranda and I live in Idaho in the United States with my husband, Cody, and our two cats, Miss Kitty and Miss Mow.  Please don’t let my lack of naming abilities affect your thoughts on my creative skills!  I have been crafting forever.  My mother is a wonderful artist and seamstress and I started crafting because of her.  I love to draw, sew, paper craft, woodwork (thanks Dad and Grandpa) and anything else that can get my craftiness going! I have been focused on card making for a while now.  There are so many fun techniques and I love the versatility.

Here are some fabulous creations from my team featuring images courtesy of Sami Stamps!

#183-Die/Punch Frenzy-A Day For Daisies

***Unfortunately the last chance winner did not contact me to claim the prize for challenge #179 so it has been forfeited, which is rather unfortunate as we have so many people that play along regularly and 3 people couldn't be bothered to claim their prize.  One of the reasons why I ask you all to be followers so you don't miss out on a great prize!!***
