Digistamps4Joy Mid Challenge Reminder for Challenge #113

Hi all, it's time for the mid challenge reminder at Digistamps4Joy. For those who don't know, Digistamps4Joy is now an Anything Goes with a optional twist monthly challenge. Our challenges run from the 1st of every month to the last day of every month. 

This will also be my last challenge as a DT member for DS4J. It was an extremely difficult decision but with the loss of my dad and sister last year and other family members with health issues this year, I feel that it is time for me to say good bye. I have so enjoyed being a part of this fabulous team with such an incredible 'boss'. They have been like a family to me and have seen me through many trying times over the last couple of years. So I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to them. 

Now that the mushy stuff is over, the theme for this month's challenge is Anything Goes with the the optional twist of Spring! The image that I used is called 'Spring has Sprung'. It is such an adorable image and I have been wanting to use it for awhile now. 
 The designer paper is from Graphics 45 and the CS is by Recollections. The cut file topper is a freebie from Birds Cards. The flowers in the right corner are made with a program from Silhouette and the roses and pearls are from my stash. I coloured that adorable image with my Crayola pencil crayons and oms. I added a few white highlights with my white gel pen. 
Now it's your turn to show us what you've got. You are not required to use a DS4J image but if you do not only does it bring a smile to our faces, but you have the chance on winning the DT choice prize of a $10 Gift Voucher to DS4J! How awesome is that? You have until June 30th to join us so why don't you head on over to our Challenge Blog to check out all of the rules and prizes. And while you're there check out the fab creations that my team mates have created to delight and inspire you. 

Thank you to those of you who have been faithfully following me over the years, I hope to still see you popping in. And for those of you who are new, thanks for popping in and I hope to see you again. 

Thanks ~ Charlene

Graduation Celebration - DS4J New Release Sunday June 14, 2015

Hi all, it's time for a new release again at Digistamps4Joy. I got to play with one of Margy's new images and I have to admit, I have always wanted an image like this one. It's a cameo called 'Cameo Lady'. I have always thought that cameo's are just so elegant and this one does not disappoint. 
I used a card cutting file from Birds Cards. I just loved the butterfly's and thought they would look nice with the cameo image. I coloured her with my Chameleon pens and added green 'gems' on her as well as on the frame around the image using my green metallic gel pen. The CS is by Recollections and the DP by SU. 
The sentiments inside is a freebie from Docrafts. I used my Nestibilities Scalloped Square for the frame for my sentiment on the inside and a Memory Keepers punch for the corners of my sentiment on the front. 

I hope that I have inspired you enough to head over to our Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the images being released today and also check out the incredible creations my team mates have made.
