Hello, I am Amelia Breytenbach and I won the guest designer spot for The Stamping Boutique for September – what a wonderful opportunity and privilege.
I am married for 26 years to Nico, my biggest supporter, and we live in Pretoria, South Africa with our two dogs. I am a librarian at a large residential university for the past 30 years and still enjoy my professional job. But when I am off duty I keep myself busy with card making - I just love it. I have been stamping for 6 years now but started blogging and enter challenges since February this year. I have a variety of stamps from several companies, local and abroad. I am a newbie to digi stamps and really enjoy the advantages and ease of use of these stamps. My first card with a digi stamp was actually with a TSB image! I use different colouring techniques for my cards but my favourite is watercolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits.
Choosing the images from The Stamping Boutiques’s collection was quite challenging as all of them are just awesome. Thanks for the opportunity to showcase these digi stamps on my cards and share the projects on your challenge blog.

I think it's going to be another hot day today. That makes it tough to work on Christmas images, but I think I'm going to start on them today. A lot of people seem to be getting a head start on their Christmas cards so I better get busy. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and having a great week!

Good Morning all! This week we are once again sponsoring the challenge at Paper Playtime and the theme is "Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O." Make sure to upload your cards on the Paper Playtime blog for your chance to win 5 images of your choice from TSB!
Check out this wonderful card made by our very own Maria, don't you just love the colors she chose and what a perfect sentiment! Unfortunately this will be one of Maria's final projects with TSB as she will be leaving the design team. We will miss Maria and her BEAUTIFUL projects, but wish her much luck in her new endeavors! I'm sure we will be seeing her around blog land!
