and lastly by
Digistamps4Joy SHOP

South African crafters are new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010 – Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) In May 2012, Margy Kieser took over ownership of DS4J, and there are now two South African artists who contribute to the more than 500 images available. Margy has taken the store to new heights and the store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. In addition, one of our own South African rubber stamp companies granted us permission for one range of rubber stamps to be converted into digistamp images. The store has PAYPAL, PAYFAST (South African) and EFT (South African) facilities. Digistamps4Joy offers a monthly freebie on the first Friday of every month, and holds regular bi-weekly card challenges that draw entries from many international card makers.

I made this diamond wedding criss cross card for my neighbour who asked for a special card.She loved it and so did the recipients.

The papers are First edition Daydream, they are embossed and shiny in real life.
The ribbon is from Mei Flower, lace from Crafty ribbons, flowers and gems a mixture from stash. I made the stick-pin with beads.
It is sewn on my machine all around the edges

On the back of the large green card is a heart edged with lime green ink and sentiment free from the internet.

Because of the flowers, I made a box for it so they would not get squashed!

I am entering the following challenges;

Crafty ribbons -------------------anything goes

Delightful challenges ---------------add ribbon

My heart pieces --------------------wedding or anniversary

It has been a lovely week.
On Monday we had a strawberry 'afternoon tea' at the sewing club and we all had to take china cups, saucers and plates
On Tuesday,  my grandsons girlfriend graduated from Uni and has a job to go to in September and then my daughter-in-laws dog in Darwin Oz had 10 healthy puppies, 4 boys and 6 girls, what a handful for their Mum !!
Thank you for your visit and have a good week

Hugs Tilly x
