That's right, one lucky random person will win a $10 gift certificate from Digi My World!!

And here's a little info about Digi My World...

Digi My World opened its doors in April 2011. It was created by me, Annie
Kelly, a self taught artist, crafter and web designer. I has always
dabbled in doodling and creating from even an early age. Whatever the
craft, I have tried it. From drawing, painting, sewing, doll & pattern
making, I have tried it all. Mind you, not successful at it all, but I
sure did try it all!

Clipart has taken on a whole new art form in recent years. The world of
paper crafts have brought line art to a whole new level - being dubbed
"digital stamps". It is with all these new developments that Digi My
was created.

I am a stay at home mom to 2 boys. My oldest son is ADD and my youngest
is autistic. It is because of my youngest son that I was not able to
initially go back into the work force. I have been selling and working
online since 2001, owning and creating for the web. If it wasn't for the
wonderful connection of the internet, I am not sure where I would be

All of my digital stamps and clip art are my own creations. I get
inspired by the most random and silly things. Long trips in the car can
give me 7 -10 new mini collection ideas. It is a wondrous feeling being
inspired by the simple things in life! I hope you enjoyed visiting with
me today -- and if you are in need of some adorable and original images,
please make sure to visit Digi My World. I hope it brings a smile to your

A special thanks for Courtney of Penny's Challenge Blog for allowing me
this opportunity to share my creations.
