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 week’s 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 :)

    Here is this week's Sketch and my creation using a Doodle Pantry image:

    I coloured the image using Copics and added some highlights using a white gel pen. The embellishments are some sunflowers which I feel compliment the image perfectly and the background papers are autumnal colours, just right for the colour scheme of the card! The swirls are sewn on gold-coloured beads, and the stickers complete the creation.
