A new sponsor-Beccy's place.

Hello and Welcome back! It is Heide in the cold, cold of Michigan. I  Hope your start to the New Year is going well and so glad that so many of you could join us with our previous challenge.

We have a brand new sponsor for you this challenge. Beccy's Place, hope you find some time to go check out her cute, cute images. Beccy Muir is the owner and has agreed to give our lucky winner from this weeks challenge 3 free single image or one free digi set.
Beccy’s Place Digital Designs by Beccy Muir:
"My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing.  There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too.  I still dabble in each of those crafts (and many others) from time to time but I generally gravitate toward paper, which I find versatile and forgiving.
I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies.  From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects.  Some of my images have now been made into rubber stamps by the wonderful team over at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  These days you can usually find me “hanging out” over on my blog,
