MAWTT Challenge: Lovely Ladies!

This week's MAWTT challenge, LOVELY LADIES, is sponsored by Rick St Dennis images. I picked the lovely "Isabella gardening with a friend" image. She reminds me of my little girl so I colored her hair auburn :D
Background paper: Country Companions
Sentiment: GinaK Designs "petals & wings"



Disclaimer: I do not always support all themes / images of stamp designers (rubber or digital) but will always use images that are acceptable for a child-friendly and Christian audience.

DS4J challenge # 61: Birthdays are FUN!

For our latest Digistamps4Joy challenge, Birthday are FUN here's a message from Margy!
"As I will have been the new owner of DS4J for one whole year on the 23rd February 2013, I thought we would have a birthday bash. Your creation/card can be anything to do with  BIRTHDAYS!!! It can be for ANY age as well!"
I used one of my favorite DS4J images, Cosmos, which I layered digitally before printing out. I did make sure that the height and width of the combined images will fit once cut out :D
Sentiment: GinaK Designs - Whimsical Wishes
Background paper: Country Companions
Colored using my Spectrum Noirs (pale set)

Dress-up doll cards!

How cute these came out! These are for the 3 girls having birthday at church in March :D

Mo Manning's got this very cute digi-stamp set, Trudy with 3 party dresses which I used for these cards:
 I colored and cut out Trudy's image and popped it on the DP with 3D foam. I put the 3D foam down the middle of the body so that the tabs of the dresses can fit around the edges.I then colored one different dress for each card and dressed Trudy on front and put the rest of the dresses in a little pocket on the inside of the card for the little recipient to color herself.
 Here are the other two I made:

(The stamp set comes with a set of shoes & two pairs of tights with shoes as well.)
Background DP: Country Companions
Sentiment: GinaK Designs "The Giving Tree"

MAWTT challenge time! Love is in the Air

Here we are again. It's Valentine's Day today!! I know a lot of hopeful hearts get swept away on a wave of hearts but I think for some fellow married friends it's a time to re-evaluate the precious blessing of marriage!
We have a wonderful sponsor this week too!!

I made my card for the Moving Along With The Times challenge Love is in the Air, with three very important words "Live. Love. Laugh" (GinaK Design "Wild Flowers") and hope to give encouragement to my wonderful, hardworking and sacrificing hubby.
The background paper is from Raspberry Road's Always and Forever (paper #10).

Live
Prov 4:4: He also taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words; Keep my commands, and live.

Love
Prov 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins

Laugh
“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” 
― William Shakespeare

Join us at MAWTT and play along in our Love is in the Air challenge!! Share with us your love story too :D

DS4J CHALLENGE # 60: Romance is in the Air

Hello and welcome to my post for Digistamps4Joy's Challenge #60:

Romance is in the Air

I used this lovely Heart of Roses and filled it with scripture (1 Cor 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, lovethese three; but the greatest of these is love.)

I colored a second large rose and cut it out, popped it with 3D foam on top and covered it with Glossy Accents (not so clear on the pic).

So pull out your hearts & roses and join us at Digistamps4Joy! You have two weeks to play along :D
