{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project - Sunday New Releases}

We are celebrating a very special milestone at DigiStamps4Joy.  Jen, one of our designers, has designed her 500th digi for the shop.  So hop on over to DS4J's blog and take a look at the stunning new release images this Sunday, and you might also spot a surprise along the way. 

Another centre step design.  I have used the stunning new design by Jen called MISTERI'S NEW SHOES which you can find here, as well as the WINDSOR image which you can find here.  

The images and sentiment have been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The design papers, flowers and buttons are from my stash. The sentiment was coloured with dry chalks and is a freebie from the wonderful sharing SHARON from  A PIECE OF HEART.  The bling is from Blueberry Bear.


Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
A big welcome to my new Followers, hope you will enjoy your visits here.  Also thank you to my loyal and faithful followers who always leave such wonderful inspiration here for me to feast on.  Love you all and leaving you with this photo I took of Aloes flowering in the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, in the West Rand in South Africa.  They usually flower during the late winter months.

  50. Oh poor Misterie wandering around Windsor Castle in her new shoes. No wonder she's smiling having found a moment to give her feet some relief :-) Desire, your card is absolutely beautiful - I love that I can make a story around it. YYour colours are gorgeous though I will admit that initially I wondered how this card fitted into the Autumn/Fall theme of our challenge but I was able to make another story - A bright crisp Autumn Day = blue, autumn browns in the castle and flower embellishments, Touch of green in Misterie's outfit great. Then I found the clue - your photgraph of the amazing flowers blooming - in South Africa - Thank you for sharing it with us. I've had such a lovely time enjoying your entry Desire. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team) ps: I'm from the UK :-)
