Drawn With Character
Prize: 3 Images
I'm not sure where to begin! I found Krista's shop on Etsy and it was instant love! Every one of her whimsical, fun little creations are magnificent! Her first love has always been drawing and you can sure tell by what she puts out with her imagination. She worked as an animator for over 15 years. 10 of those years was with Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida until the studio closed in 2004. It is amazing to see her creations not only on paper, but when I first reached out to her they were used for cookies! AMAZING COOKIES! She has now taken those amazing digital stamps that she shares with us in the crafting world and has added rubber stamping as well. It has been so exciting to see her grow in the crafting realm and her images are amazing to work with. They are a joy to color and you can find some amazing creations out there with her line of stamps!! Be sure to visit her shop.
