Challenge #131 - Anything Goes plus optional twist of "Make it Sparkle"

The theme for December 2016's challenge is

 ANYTHING GOES
with an optional twist of "Make it SPARKLE"

Can you believe that it is Christmas this month? Honestly, for me, this year has just flown!
This is therefore our last challenge for 2016 so let's celebrate with a LOT of SPARKLE!
The Design Teams and I wish you all a 
Blessed Christmas

Hosted by Lindsay
Hi Everyone! And welcome to the Digistamps4Joy December Challenge. My name is Lindsay and I am a part of the DS4J Design Team and couldn't be happier to be hosting this month's challenge, which is always is Anything Goes! When trying to think of the "twist" to add on, for those of you who want a bit more of a challenge, I wanted it not only to be something you could add to any digital stamp you choose to use, but also go along with this time of year and that is "Make It Sparkle". No matter the weather where you are or what holiday you may be celebrating this month, you can always add a bit of sparkle to your card!

For my card today I chose to use the "MouseChorallers" digital stamp from the DS4J shop. For my sparkle, I added Perfect Pearls and Distress Glitter to my texture paste and then put it through a snow stencil for some added interest to my scene! The picture does not do this card justice, I promise it really sparkles in real life!! Make sure to link up your card before December 31st for your chance to win some really great prizes! I can't wait to see all the sparkly goodness in the links below!

The theme for December is always ANYTHING GOES, but this month with the optional twist of 'Let it Sparkle'

  The challenge runs UNTIL 31 December 2016

The DTs Choice prize of the $10 Gift Voucher is applicable to all entries. Remember to link your projects in the linky below. 
Don't forget you MUST use a digital stamp or rubber stamp - no clipart please!

I am proud to announce we have a Guest Designer with us .... Kaija.
I am so excited to be a guest designer here at DigiStamps4Joy; thank you for having me!  I work as a private oboe instructor as well as in the therapeutic horsemanship field.  In my spare time, I enjoy watching crafting videos and making scrapbook layouts, cards, mixed medium projects, sewing, home decor, etc and teaching craft classes.  I am blessed with a supportive husband of just over 30 years, two grown children and 2 lovely little grand-girls! I adore my family, friends, photography, horses, music, and paper.  I love a day without a clock!  Please come visit me at ScrappyHorses.blogspot.com

Have you seen our new Paper Doll category in the store!
Carla has been playing around with our Paperdoll Penny, three clothing sets already in the store (Cheerleader, Teen, Kimono), and the newly released set of clothes called Ms Santa.
The doll and clothing sets are bought separately. These are perfect for printing for your little ones to colour in, cut out, and play with. Or for those who want to merge digitally (PNG files included with transparent backgrounds). EACH item of clothing in a set is a separate file.
Note: There are no "tags" on the clothing items so that they can be used digitally. BUT if you want to cut out and dress, then Carla has kindly written up a short guideline below on how to add the tags and cut between the hair and the shoulder.

 Paperdoll Penny + Teen set

 Paperdoll Penny + Kimono set (made up into a card)

Paperdoll Penny + Cheerleader set 

Paperdoll Penny + Ms Santa set

 Thanks for visiting and we hope you enjoyed our showcase!
 All of these digistamps are now available in the DS4J Shop.

Apologies

PLEASE NOTE .... Our new releases scheduled for this Sunday morning have been postponed. The host is having technical problems and I am unable to upload new files. They are working on it, and I will let you know as soon as the problem is fixed. The shop is still available for purchasing files, bu I cannot upload new ones.
