Perking You Up - Digistamps4Joy New Release

It's that time once again, time for another new release day at Digistamps4Joy. As you can probably tell from the video one of the new images has something to do with coffee. When I saw this image this song just kind of popped into my head. When I was young (oh so very long ago) I was in a Vocal Jazz choir and we would sing this song...ah it brought back such good memories. 

So the image that I got to play with is by Riette and is actually a set of 2 images and 3 sentiments...such a fabulous deal. 
Isn't this great? The set is called Coffee Club and I don't know about you but I have a lot of coffee loving friends and relatives. But you don't even have to know a coffee lover (or tea lover) to use these fabulous images as you will see by the card that I have made. I know someone who is going through a rough time right now and I wanted to make her a Thinking of you type of card. I know, you're thinking "How can she make a thinking of you type of card with those images?" Well look below and you will see.
See what I mean? For my card I used only the coffee cup and changed the feel from coffee or tea to something totally different. I coloured the image with my Prisma Pencil crayons and oms and added some fabulous coffee inspired digital papers. 

So now that you've seen what I have done with my image I hope that you will pop on over to our Challenge Blog to check out all of the other incredible images being released today. And while you're there have a look see at the fabulous creations my team mates have made to inspire you. 

Thanks for visiting ~ Charlene

Feeling a Little Batty?

Hey all, are you feeling a little batty these days? Well if so, then you need to check out the new releases at Digistamps4Joy. And if bats aren't your "cup of tea" then there is another new image that just might be. That's right, it's time for a New Release again at Digistamps4Joy again and have Margy and Riette ever come out with some fabulous new images to delight and inspire you. 

The new image that I chose to play with this time is by Margy and called Batty For You. And you guessed it, it is the sweetest little bat you ever did see. Just perfect for those Valentine's Day cards that we all need to get started on now that Christmas is over (never ends does it? lol). 
So what do you think, is he not the cutest little sucker (get it? He's a bat so he's a little sucker...yeah I know, my warped sense of humour is coming out again lol) you ever did see? I just fell in love with him and that little heart he's cuddling. I used a Silhouette file to cut the card (and I think I still need practice on my cutter as it didn't turn out quite like I wanted), added some black and red ribbon and little rhinestones I had in my stash and voila...he is done!
I kept the inside pretty CAS with just the sentiment that I did up and punching the little hearts on the corners. 

So I hope that I have inspired you, or at least piqued your curiosity, to go head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out all of the fabulous new images. And while you're there check out all of the incredible creations my team mates have made to inspire you.
