Some words about TSB:
I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique.
My team and I are very happy to sponsor ABC Christmas Challenge. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Co. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as,
their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

And now, are you ready for some inspiration from the DT?

Christy from The Stamping Boutique, was so very kind sending us in the team some images to work with. Thank you Christy!
