Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world


whichever order I put them in, these are my passion!

... all from my little home studio in Durban, on the east coast of sunny South Africa!

Don't we just love a little glitter, sparkle and bling in our lives ... oh yes we do! 
For this challenge we'd like to see LOTS on your papercraft creations too!!!

If you enter a papercraft project into the inlinkz, using a non-Digistamps 4 Joy image, you will get one entry into the random draw.


If you use a Digistamps 4 Joy image on your entry, you triple your chances of winning .... you get THREE entries into the random draw! Now isn't that a bonus!?!

One random winner will be chosen (random.org) to win 3 images of choice from the store.

We will then have a DT's choice award. This award will go to the card / project that we vote to be our favourite (and must be a digistamps4joy image). This winner will receive a $6 gift voucher to spend in the store. We hope that there will be an entry (or two) using a Digistamps 4 Joy image, as there wasn't one in the previous challenge.

You do not need to use a Digistamps4Joy image to win, but we’d love it if you do!
We will choose 2 runners-up who we feel deserve a spot in the top 3.

Challenge Rules
You can use any image for the challenges. See above.
You have two weeks to enter the challenge.
You may enter a maximum of three (3) entries per DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY challenge.
Your entry must be new. No backlinking to previous posts.
Please link back to the Digistamps 4 Joy blog.
Projects that do not follow the theme will not be entered into the draw.
Please use the Inlinkz to link to your CARD/ PROJECT only, please don't link to your entire blog.
You may combine this challenge with other challenges.

The most important rule, however, is to have fun!
Here is my sparkly, shiny card for your inspiration:
 My card features the image  Daisy Dee from the Digistamps 4 Joy store
I have coloured the image using my alcohol markers, and the embellishments are sewn on beads and sequins.
The large gold foil 'brads' are Card Candi, from ABC Crafts

Now it's YOUR turn to create a masterpiece!

(Remember to link your blog post and not your blog. You will also make our life so much easier if you switched off the word verification on your blog.)

I can't wait to see what you create!
