Winner - Bug Time

Hi everyone, Doris here with the
winner of the Bug Time challenge.

Thank you to our generous sponsor

Our winner is #13 Lucy from

Lucy has won her choice of 3 digi images

Just a quick reminder - please be sure that
any project you enter in a challenge meets the theme
and that you're adding it to the correct challenge.
I had to delete almost half of the entries because
they either did not have a bug on their project OR
their project was meant for the Anything Goes challenge.
We hate to do that, but it's only fair to the other entries.

Congratulations to our winner and thanks to those 
who played along!

Bug Time

Hi everyone, Doris here with our next challenge.
Summer is almost over in my part of the world,
and I'll miss the warm weather and being outside all the
time, except for one part I don't like - bugs.  But I like
the kind I can color, so this week our theme is Bug Time!

Thank you to our always generous sponsor
Prize - winner choice of 3 images

Hello! My name is Sarah though I am commonly known by friends and online as Star (thus came Star Stampz!) My nick name derived back from the early days when I first began signing my artwork as Stargirl (and have done so ever since.)

Art has had a big influence on my life and who I am. Though I have dabbled in many styles and types discovering Japanese anime and it's art style is what renewed my vigor to draw. It helps that I'm also a complete geek ~ anime, Japanese culture, books, writing, fantasy, cartoons, music, musicals, etc.

I am not very crafty with paper scrapbooking or putting together beautiful cards and creations but when I discovered the world of digital stamping I was fascinated what others could do with the same art stamp. I have also always been fond of inking pen drawings in my sketchbooks. I have focused a lot on my digital art and other freelance projects but digital stamps is that perfect niche for being creative and getting back line art drawings. I always look forward to see what creations others have turned my stamps into

And now for some inspiration from our design team
CraftyGirl -  Lady Bug

Carole -Fireflies

Mel - Fireflies

I guess some bugs can be cute, right?  Ok, now it's your turn - this
challenge will be open until September 12 and please remember
to follow our simple rules:  only 3 entries per person, project must be made
by you and no back dating please.

Before I go, the whole Crafting by Design team would like
to send love and prayers to everyone effected by Hurricane Hugo
and now Hurricane Irma.  Some of our DT gals are in Irma's 
path and we pray for their safety and hope you join us too.

Happy Crafting!
