Sketch #140-47

Here's my card from a Blast from the Past for Sketch # 47
in May 2010

This week we have Tracey Malnofski the owner of 
The Stamping Boutique as our sponsor.

Tracey Malnofski's resume reads like a who's who of the Stamping Industry. Besides being the owner and a designer for The Stamping Boutique, she's also a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Company and has also worked for InStyle Stamps, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack. She's a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in her community.Tracey has quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but she loves them all. Her "Boutique" has it all - fairytale, whimsy, sentimental . . . and Candy! 

Here's what Tracey says about her Stamping Boutique.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images.

Crafty Sentiments Designs: Let's Get Girly

Thanks for dropping buy I love reading your comments and answering your emails.  I've had some lovely questions asking me where I get my blog headers from, 99% of the time they are from photo's I've taken and this month it's another photo of our pond on a rainy day, last Friday it a different view from last time and it  doesn't show the bridge from this shot as I was standing on it and our bridge is covered in greenery as the Wisteria has stopped flowering at this time of year.

Take care and have a lovely week.
