We have a wonderful group of sponsors helping us celebrate this week. A BIG thanks to our generous sponsors for making this possible. We would like to introduce you to our sponsors and a little bit about them. We have:

Heart Song Designs offers hand drawn digital stamp images perfect for all your papercrafting needs. We offer a variety of images from elegant to super cut. Come visit us at www.heartsongdesignsshop.com and find digis that make your heart sing. 

My small digital stamp store called K ‘n K Designs was started to help pay for my Schnoodle’s vet bills and general care while I am working on my college course. Most of the sets feature animals, and my Schoodle Kolar is the star of quite a number of them. There are sets for many different occasions, and even a great freebie for you to enjoy! I hope to see you there! 

Paper Pretties is a full-service online crafting store.   We have many exclusive stamp lines, from elegant to whimsical, sweet to clever; there is something for every stamper in our Prettie Boutique!
In case you haven't heard yet, Paper Pretties has a BRAND NEW owner, Heather Lee-Reppen.  Now located in Madison, WI, we are pleased to offer you amazing customer service, faster and cheaper shipping, and a wider variety of stamping "must have" products to go along with all of our fun new stamps!! All orders are shipped within 24 hours.

I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Tuesday Throwdown. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I've worked for InStyle Stamps, Squigglefly, and The Digi Shack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"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. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

 Whimsie Doodles (http://www.whimsiedoodles.com) is so excited to be sponsoring the new challenge! In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online. Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog (http://whimsiedoodles.blogspot.com), where we also post weekly challenges and tutorials.
