New releases at Digistamps4Joy

Happy Sunday friends,
After our horrible dust storm of a few days ago, we are having the most beautiful blue skies at the moment, but we now badly need some rain. Nothing worth mentioning has fallen since the end of summer, (April) so it is very dry.

I haven't been able to make a card with a new release for a while, due to moving, but to day I do have one for you. There are some lovely new images in the SHOP, so do yourselves a favour and go and have a look. Did you also know that DS4J has a points reward system?  For every $10 spent you get a $1 reward that is a very good reason to do some shopping.

So here is my card using the lovely Sunbird by Margy. It is sitting on a beautiful Leucospermum - pincushion. We received a beautiful plant as a gift for our new house, and it will be planted in our new garden in the next week or so.

This is what I used:

Paper - Teal cardstock, Printed paper from a paper pad - vintage with no name

Image - Sunbird, coloured with Twinkling H20's, the yellow pincushion heads were made with Pontura pearl makers. I cut it out with an X-cut die, and inked the edges.

The ivy is a Marianne Design die, inked it while still in the die.

Added glittery brads.

Sentiment - is a stamp not sure from where it came

I made this from a sketch on The Outlawz sketch challenge

The DT have made lovely cards using some of the new images and for inspiration you can have a look HERE

Please join us again as the new challenge starts today. Leaving you with God's Word in 1 John 4:9 which says, "This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him." God bless always!
