Digistamps4Joy Challenge #41 - An Attitude of Gratitude

Well everyone, the blog hop is over, and we hope that you all enjoyed every stop that you made.

Did you remember to comment on each stop…I sure hope so as I would really like each of you to have had a chance at one of the fabulous prizes that we have.

To see if you’re a winner of one of our fabulous prizes, check out our winners page. Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone for making this a great hop.

Now I’d like to welcome you to our first challenge on our new Blog and our theme is….An Attitude of Gratitude. We picked this theme for a specific reason…so we could say thank you to a very special person that is huge part of our group. I first met this person on another blog (ssshhhhh) and we talked a bit. But it wasn’t until we were at a few “cyber parties” together that I really got to know her well (she is quite the cyber partier). It was through these parties that I got to know what a wonderfully warm and caring person she is. She is the one that gave me my first shot at being on a DT and has been the one to constantly encourage me when I was unsure of what I had done. She keeps us smiling with her wonderful wit, and ahhhing over her incredible creations. She always has a kind word to say…or a cyber shoulder to cry on. And she is always one of the first to jump in to help when needed. And she is the one that helps to keep us all on track with our projects...and adds so many incredible images to our store (100 now!!). So Jen, this challenge is for you….for all that you have done for all of us at Digistamps4Joy. I am so proud to count you as part of my cyber family.

For my card I chose one of our new images Girl on a Swing. I just loved the look of this image and thought it would make a great thank you card. The style of card is called a Front Pocket card.
I coloured her with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms...and a little bit of SU brown
felt pen on the branch

This is the sentiment outside of the says "One Of A Kind" and "Thank You". The sentiments are stamps by SU. I cut the image and sentiments with my Nestibilities Petite Scalloped Ovals Large. The cs is from Bassil and the Light peach is by Recollections. I took my SU Thank You So Much stamp and stamped it all over the Recollections paper. The dp is by SU. The little roses are by Prisma and a paired them with small oak leaves, small leaves by Jolee by You, and my Savanah border die from Memory Box. The peach flowers under my roses are from my stash. The corner die is called Madera Corner by Memory Box.

I just had to show you a close up of this fabulous image. Now it’s your turn…we’d like to see you create a paper project (it doesn’t have to be a card) that expresses gratitude. It can be a thank you to a wonderful mother, father, teacher…it doesn’t matter. We’d love to see some heartfelt sentiments…anything that says Thanks.
We have a few simple rules and you can find them on our sidebar on the challenge blog. My fellow team mates have been hard at work and having fun creating their spectacular creations to inspire you…so leave them some love please. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by…..

This card is really gorgeous, Charlene. I love all of the dimension and texture.
Great song by James Taylor. That was big when I was a kid. I remember singing it to my best friend and I was surprised to see tears in her eyes. Didn't think my voice was that bad. ;)
