Teri, as the Sole Trader/Designer.
I have doodled and sketched all of my life.
I started making greetings cards when my last child was born, and used my doodles on them as I couldn’t find what I wanted in the usual craft places.
I only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009.
I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone!
Why not pop over and take a look.

Who are offering 4 digis of the winners choice!

Great prizes again from our lovely sponsors.  I'm looking forward to seeing your wonderful crafty creations this week.  Have fun !!

All That Scraps

"Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born!  It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep "
Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

Prize - 4 digis

Doctor Digi
DR Digi's House of Samps is a site that aims to bring you digi stamps with a sense of humour. We're not your average Digi site, you wont find flowers and teddy bears. Come on over and have a browse.


Thank goodness that's sorted and a big thanks to everyone for you patience, I hope you can find time to enter the challenge this week.   As always our Design Team have excelled themselves and have some super cards for your inspiration.

Play BINGO @ Charisma this week...

 What a week....I've been chasing my tail since last Thursday and getting nowhere fast. I started a new job in a completely different office and doing work I've never done before (Staff shuffle) so I have to start training all over again. It's quite daunting at my age having to learn new things and even harder after being 10 years in the same job. It's going to take a while to be trained up all the aspect of the job so I'm just taking every day as it comes. Wish me luck...
Enough of my waffling lets see this weeks challenge.

This week it's Team B's challenge!!

Eyes down for....

Please pick any 3 horizontal, vertical or diagonal
