HAPPY BIRTHDAY ...
{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #54}

This is another DT Project for a challenge over at DS4J's blog.  The theme for Challenge No.54 is a  BINGO with a Difference (the usual rules - 5 in a row, horizontally, vertically or diagonally apply)  I have created a centre step card using the cute Lillies for You digi.  You can find her here at the DS4J's shop.

The image was coloured with H2O's and dry chalks.  The sentiment is a freebie from the talented Hannelie of Desert Diva.

So hop on over to DS4J's blog and link your BINGO creation to Challenge #54.





Here's the BINGO with a Difference Board:




Please also visit my dear friend Pam's blog.  She and her darling hubby are celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary on 3 November and to honour this, she is hosting an Anniversary Challenge with some lovely DigiStamps4Joy digi images up for grabs.  All you have to do is create an Anniversary Card (link it up with Mr Linky) and become a Follower. 

Here are some pics I took during our recent visit to Pilansberg Nature Reserve here in South Africa:
