Put On Your Dancing Shoes

Hi all, it's time for another New Release with Digistamps4Joy and boy do our artists ever have some fabulous new images for you! I have been lucky enough to see 3 of the new images and can just imagine what the rest are going to be like. The image that I chose to showcase this week is by Margy and called My Ballgown...oooooh it is so pretty and such a dream to work with. 
 I coloured it with my Prisma pencil crayons and oms. I also added some white highlights with my white gel pen.

And this image is so versatile. Grad cards, weddings, anniversaries, birthday's...this image can do them all. I decided on a birthday card though as I have lots of birthdays coming up in the near future. 

I used the sketch from Colors and Sketches Sketch Challenge. 

To see this image and all of the other fabulous images being released today, head on over to Digistamps4Joy's Challenge Blog. And maybe check out our current challenge, the theme is Circles. 

Thanks for popping in ~ Charlene

Baby Boy: Digistamps4Joy Challenge #99 - Circles

Hi all, I know, it's been a very long time. Sorry I haven't been around for a long time. I have been dealing with some medical issues for a family member and have not had very much computer or crafting time.

So today marks the half way point for Digistamps4Joy's current challenge. The challenge is being hosted by my fabulously talented team mate Asmah and she wants to see circles! That's right, she wants some sort of circle made of paper on can even add circular embellishments if you'd like. I chose to add circles to my card as I don't have a circle die that is big enough to make a card sized circle. Yeah I know, I could have traced a plate or something and cut it out, but that was too much like work right now. So the image that I used is one that was just release 2 weeks ago called Baby Rattle. We have had a lot of babies born to nieces, and friend's daughter's lately so I figured I would stock up on baby cards. 
Now originally I was going to heat emboss the entire rattle using some embossing felts that I have, but took me so long just to do the areas of green that I did that I decided against doing the rest of it embossed.

So now it's your turn to show us what you've got. Just head on over to Digistamps4Joy's Challenge Blog to check out the rules and a list of our fabulous prizes. And while you're there check out what my incredibly talented team mates have come up with to inspire you. 

Thanks for dropping by ~ Charlene
