DS4J BLOG HOP to celebrate International Card Making Day!

BLOG HOP EXTENDED TO 11 OCTOBER!


It's BLOG HOP time to celebrate International Card Making Day!! You should have come from PAM's page. If you need to go back to the beginning CLICK HERE.
I used a merge of Karoo water and Aloe and a lucky commenter on this post can win the "Karoo water" image. (See rules of the hop below.)
This image is very well known throughout the Karoo (semi-arid area of South Africa). My Mom grew up near a town called Kakamas in the Northern Cape which is known for it's desert-like landscape AND export quality grapes!! It's a sight to behold - desert landscape broken up by lush-green vineyards.

DS4J is also offering a whopping $30 Gift Voucher to the Digistamps4Joy store where you can choose any images up to a total value of $30! Now isn’t that a fabulous prize? But what do you need to do to earn it?

Many (not all) of the blogs will have a unique Letter of the Alphabet displayed in the Blog Hop post. Collect all these letters and put them together to create a short quotation. Send your answer to Margy at info@digistamps4joy.co.za with the subject title of “DS4J Blog Hop answer”. A randomly drawn winner will be chosen from all the correct entries received. (see rules below)

Here's my Letter to complete the Mystery Phrase!
