New release Sunday at DS4J

Happy Sunday friends and crafters,
I do hope the weekend has been a good one for you. After having beautiful almost summer weather the whole week, we are back to a touch of winter. Still lovely and sunny, but oh boy..the wind has a real bite to it. We shouldn't complain, the winter has been very mild and by Tuesday we will be back to 20 deg. C.

I would also like to welcome the new members to my blog. Lovely to have you join my little family here, and hope you will pop in often and find something that may inspire you.

We have some new releases at Digistamps4Joy today. Here are two of them:      African Violets and Cottage teapot. The DT have used these images and come up with some gorgeous cards.  Do have a look HERE for inspiration


For my card I decided to use "African Violets". I just love these flowers and have several different colours in my house.

I used a deep lavender cardstock and matted striped and gingham paper from a Vintage paper block.

The image was coloured with my usual Distress inkpads and cut out with a Nellie Snellen MFD, then matted onto cardstock and cut around the edges.

Finished off with a sentiment and a double bow in purple and green.

I used sketch #60 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 for my design.
