Farewell to 2 DT members

It is with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to two of our team members.
Ursula Uphof
Ursula is one of our South African team members and has been with Digistamps4Joy since the day we started, and has been an absolutely loyal and dedicated member. We are VERY sad to lose this close family member, but understand that life goes on, and we wish you happy travels in your retirement!

Thank you Ursula for your friendship, loyalty, and of course all your beautiful creations with our digistamps. We will catch up with you in blog land.

Here is just a small sample of the work she created while on our team.

Annie Sharland
Annie rejoined Digistamps4Joy in January 2016, and is one of those super creative card makers. We were very privileged to have her on our team.

Annie leaves us to tackle some more of the challenges that life throws at us. Thank you Annie for your creative cards, your loyalty, and of course the friendship in our group. We all wish you the best for the future and pop in now and then on FB and say HI.

Here is just a small sample of the work she created while on our team.

Mid-challenge #131 - ATG + optional "Make it Sparkle"

The theme for December's challenge is

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


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! 
  
ALL challenges at Digistamps4Joy are Anything Goes. The theme for December's challenge is  
ANYTHING GOES with an optional twist of "MAKE IT SPARKLE"

We have a Guest Designer who we are proud to announce...
DIANE LOUISE


Diane used our new digi called "Wreath" on the outside, which is also on SPECIAL for the month of December! On the inside of the card she used our second SPECIAL for December called "Christmas Robin".
Hello my name is Diane Louise and I am delighted to be guest designer for this mid-way challenge posting for Digistamps4Joy.  I really enjoyed making my sparkly Christmas card for my parents, using the gorgeous Christmas Robin and Wreath digital stamps.  I live in Cheshire, Great Britain with my lovely Hubby and 2 fabulous grown up children, along with our beautiful big bundle of gorgeousness, Mutley, our black Labrador dog, who brings so much fun to our household. I own so much crafty stuff now that we really do need to move into a bigger house :o)   I have been paper crafting since 1998 when a friend introduced me to the world of decoupage; I fell in love with card making and very quickly became addicted to my hobby... The best thing though was opening my Blog called Diane Louise's Favourite Cards & Gifts (https://dianesfavouritecards.blogspot.co.uk/) and finding Blogland and Challenge Blogs, which inspired me to try new techniques and styles of cards. I have made so many lovely crafty friends along the way.    

Design Team B members have created these stunning cards to inspire you!

Hi Everyone! And welcome to the Digistamps4Joy December Challenge.

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'
