We have a wonderful sponsor this time:



Faery Ink Digital Stamps

“Daydreamer, faery believer, dandelion wisher, bookworm, eccentric artsy, witchy type. I draw pretty girls with wings and things so you can bring them to life with color… I live for my family & for making pretties. I love to make stuff, draw, paint, cook, read, play guitar, bargain hunt, and play World of Warcraft. I’m an introverted bookworm, animal lover and fantasy fangirl. I've been designing for the web since 1998 and creating digital stamps since 2013.”

Prize - 3 Digital Images of the winner's choice!

Now for some inspiration from our lovely DT:
