MAWTT challenge - SPORT

This week's challenge at Moving Along With The Times is to get SPORTY! And I had a giggle looking at my fellow DT's card because it seems GOLF is very popular!! I used my DS4J image, Golf Clubs to make the background and a self-made sentiment:
Now to find someone who actually plays golf!

Join us with your sporty images or any action activity!

WHOOP birthday!

We celebrated the birthday of a beautiful 5-year old girl yesterday and I made her this card:
I used the image "A big whoop" from Mo's Digital Pencil. I added some stars from the "Shapes" function in Microsoft Powerpoint. They were coloured with yellow and then covered with gold stickles.
All colouring done with Spectrum Noirs.
I used the sketch from Happy Little Stampers as inspiration:
Hope you are all having a blessed Sunday.

God bless

DS4J release Travel Club

Hi everyone

With the hectic way this year has started I feel like I need to get away !!  My one sister is going on holiday to France (SO JEALOUS) and the other sister is planning on moving to Canada!!  So they'll be putting a lot of miles on the clock this year!  This inspired me to create the new Travel Club set for Digistamps4Joy!
I used Freshly Made Sketches layout:
Background paper : Webster's Pages "Family Traditions"

The set comes with a suitcase, a hat case and some sentiments:

Take care everyone and visit DS4J to see Margy's new release and what's up with our current challenge!

Party Time Tuesday - Levelling Up

It's a new month of Party Time at PTT !!  Always Anything Goes!

I have this game-crazy teenage nephew who had his birthday last week.  I was lucky to have this perfect image from Mo Manning to celebrate his "levelling up":
The boy is cut out and adhered with foam tape, while the "levelling" sentiment was printed onto paper in the correct position. The "UP" is die-cuts from a Spellbinder alphabet die (first time I used it!!)

Coloured with Spectrum Noirs

Please join our Party and link up (just make sure you read all the rules :D )

DS4J challenge 109 Love / Valantine

It's that time of the year again with lots of hearts in the shop windows. A while ago we have decided to make our family our focus. So "Where our heart is, there is our home".... 

Here's our new challenge at Digistamps4Joy - LOVE / VALENTINE:

The heart is just a shape drawn in Powerpoint which I coloured with Spectrum Noir (as are the houses) and covered in Glossy Accents.
I used the sketch from Creative Moments for their current challenge:

Share your love with us at  This is now a MONTHLY challenge!
