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.

Encouragement Dreams Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge


Hi to all of Blogland readers.  I hope all of you are doing well.  It is hot here again in Southern CA; but that is to be expected.  I hope it is cooler where you are; and that you are enjoying whatever season it is for you.  

I am excited to announce another New Release for DS4J.  I created a card with one of the new Digis - Cleo's Walk.  Isn't she precious!  I fell in love when I saw this one.  I just need more hours in the week to create with all of these fabulous digi stamps.  I have wanted to try pink or purple hair for a while; so I decided to try it on her.  It isn't too bad; but probably could have been a little brighter.  I didn't want to make it brighter than the top of the dress.  LOL!

I decided to use a sketch this time from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I realized lately that I can create easier with a sketch and I liked this one.  See sketch below.  

I am entering this card in the Path of Positivity Challenge - Dreams.  I love this positive, upbeat challenge.  The owner, Lisa, and her DT are fabulous!  Be sure to check it out.  Dreams - I believe anyone can have their dreams come true.  This card makes me think of someone reaching for her dreams.  It reminds me of little girls dressing up in wedding gowns or fancy dresses; and imagining themselves as they would like to be someday.  It is great to work towards your dreams; but I also wanted to remind the person I send this to; that they should always be their own kind of wonderful; no matter what their dreams.  To me; being true to ourselves is the most important part of dreaming.  Don't become someone else; just because another person wants you to be different. You are perfect exactly as you are.  So dream; envision and become the person you want to be!

Male Birthday Card Using CTMH Timberline Paper and Cricut Artiste Cartridge



Hello friends.  It is nice of you to drop by and check out my latest creation.  I really had fun creating this one.  I wanted it to be about cars; but also to be a lesson to play; as we forget to do that as we get older and take on more responsibilities.  

It is time for another Mid Challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 96 - For the Boys.  You have one more week to create something fun for the guys.  Creating a man's card is always a challenge for me.  I guess it just doesn't come natural; like creating something for a girl/woman.  LOL!  I loved this digital stamp from the first time I saw it.  It is "Dad's Austin" and I thought it was perfect for my son-in-law's birthday.
