Twelve Digi prizes so far; will be given with current sponsors.  Some of these could go to followers in US; depending on what names are drawn on Oct. 1, 2014.

I may add more items, depending on number of entries.  I usually give 12 prizes plus 12 digis; but I might make it 13; if I have enough entries.  Good luck to everyone on the drawings! 

I am not allowed to ship CTMH products outside the US; but I have free Digi stamps to be given to any name I draw that is outside the US.  Please place a 1 behind your name when you register if you live outside US.  This will make it easier when I do the drawings to know who gets Digi Stamps and who gets CTMH products.  Thanks for your understanding. 

I have 7 fabulous sponsors so far; that have generously donated Digi stamps or gift certificates; so I can share the love with all my followers and not just the US.  I am very grateful for their generosity. I am hoping to add more; as I hear back from them.  Be sure to check out their stores and blogs for a wonderful selection of Digis.  Thanks so much sponsors for your wonderful support.

Birthday Card Using CTMH Whimsy Paper Fundamentals and Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Hello fellow bloggers/readers.  This summer is almost gone.  I can't believe it is the end of August already.  Where did the time go?  I think school is back in session; so a lot of mother's are having to get the kids up and off to school every day.  I bet the kids didn't feel like they even had a summer.  

EXCITING NEWS ........... 

Digistamps4Joy will be celebrating it's 100th challenge on the DS4J blog on September 3rd! To celebrate this fabulous milestone, we are holding a Blog Hop for 2 weeks; plus DS4J is giving away fabulous prizes during and after the Hop; both on DS4J blog as well as the DT blogs! Don't miss this, as you will have a whole month to celebrate with us and to win prizes! WATCH My Blog For Updates!

It is time for the Mid-Challenge DS4J Challenge 99 - Circles at DT Project for Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 99 Circles.  We have two teams at DS4J; so be sure to check out the creations on both the links.  

I had to use some of my new  CTMH Paper Fundamentals - Whimsy Assortment.  These are double sided prints, cardstock weight; and they match our regular cardstock based on the theme you choose. One side is shiny with the same pattern as the reverse side; which makes it fun to create with them. This one is with the new color Thistle; which is a purplish color.  It is hard to tell with these pictures; as one shows lighter than the other one.  The top picture is a more accurate color. Maybe the white helps to set it off.  Choose between, Whimsy, Enchantment, Adventure and Basics.  I now have all 4 and they are so much fun!
