Margy and the DS4J DT

To start off the celebration Margy is giving away a free digistamp called Party Time to everyone who "Likes" the Digistamps4Joy Facebook Page. Pretty easy peasy right? And who couldn't use a Party digistamp? Here's what I did with this fab little image. 
I decided to make this cute little birthday box card. It was so much fun to come up with ideas for it. Here's a close up of the image...

And another picture showing the bottom of the box...

But that's not all...oh no...this little image is just the beginning. We have a Birthday Themed Colouring Contest starting today and running until Friday the 24th of April @ 6 p.m. South African time (if you don't know the time difference for where you live, there is a clock on the right hand side of my blog).

For Your Little Princess - DS4J New Release April 19, 2014

It's time for another New Release at Digistamps4Joy. This time it is Team B's turn to inspire you and did we ever get a sweet little image with which to do it. Riette has outdone herself in bringing us back to our childhood days and fairytales. 

The name of the image is called Princess Pea and it comes with the image and a sentiment (not the one that I have used). 
I decided to make it into a new baby card as you just never know when you are going to need one lol. 

I hope that you will go on over to our Challenge Blog and check out all of the other new images and the fabulous creations that my team mates have made to inspire you.

Popping In - DS4J Mid Challenge Reminder

It's time for another mid point reminder at Digistamps4Joy and our challenge this month is being hosted by Tonnie and she has chosen a sketch. 

The image that I chose to use is called The "O" Look. This is a coloured image, which is really good because time sort of got away from me on this challenge lol. I have to admit, I have never used a coloured image before but oh man, I am definitely going to be looking into getting more. I love to colour but these images are so handy to have when you need a card in a hurry. 
This card was probably one of the easiest one's I have ever done. I had the sketch and the coloured image so all I had to do was decide on papers, etc. The dp's were pieces that I had left over from other projects so I can't give you a name for them (sorry) but the base is a dark brown by Bazzil. I added some rhinestones picked up at my local dollar store. I wrote the sentiment with a brown embossing pen and then added clear embossing powder and heated it up. 

I hope that you will pop on over to our Challenge Blog and check out all of my team mates fabulous creations and join in on our challenge. We have some wonderful prizes for our winners. You don't have to use a Digistamps4Joy image to join in but if you do you will be in the running for the DT choice prize which is a $10 Gift Voucher to our fabulous is that? 

Thanks for popping by ~ Charlene
