I was nicknamed “Globug” about 30 years ago and it stuck! Hence, the name of my blog, Globug Ideas. I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, where I still live with my wonderful husband, Peter. My mom, two awesome kids and three amazing teenaged grandchildren complete my little family. I am a communications consultant, but lately, I am spending less and less time consulting and more and more time making cards! The day I discovered digital stamps was my very LUCKY day! I love everything about digital stamps! I am truly thrilled to be part of the MMSC Design Team! I love a good challenge and MMSC offers just that! Okay, so with the all that out of the way, let’s get to work on our masterpieces!

This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

    My beautiful image is a pre-colored digi from Doodle Pantry

    It has such rich, beautiful, Earth-toned colors.

    You always inspire me with your cards and this one is no exception..I actually came to comment on the "back to School" card. After teaching for 33 years and now just sub, I FEEL the card. I think at one time I looked like your image...lol

    I just popped over from the Midnight Madness blog to tell you how pretty I thought your card was. I love all of the leaf embellishments you put in the corner. Very very pretty Thanksgiving card. :D

    Great Job!
