{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J + Shelleys Images: Combined Challenge}

This is my entry and you can see the complete details of how to enter this exciting combined challenge, a bit further down in this post. 

Another centre stepper. The design papers are from BasicGrey and Paperloft.  The images were coloured with H2O watercolour pencils and Copics.  The sentiment is from DigiDarla Designs and you can purchase it here.  

Here is how you create the folded circle border design:

Here's all the Combined Challenge info.  Really hope you will play along.

Margy and Shelly have been brainstorming together and we have this fun "Get Together" event planned for all the members of our groups here at Paper Craft Planet.

I haven't ever seen a combined event where two digistamp companies come together to offer a challenge like this so we hope you enjoy this special event!!!!

Should you decide to accept this fun challenge you will get a free digi stamp from
Digi Stamps 4 Joy and Shelly's Images!!!

The rules are simple....
1. Create One project with BOTH images. Be creative! But the only rule is that both digis must appear on your project. Your project can be any paper crafting project. The deadline for this challenge is March 31st, 2013.
2. You MUST post your creation on your blog. Be sure to include links to
Digi Stamps 4 Joy and Shelly's Images. Of course feel free to include any other links that you like so that your friends can find both of our digi shops easily. If you have a Facebook page we would LOVE to have you share your projects there too!!!
3. You MUST post your creation in the Paper Craft Planet Groups at Shelly's Images and Digi Stamps 4 Joy.
4. Want to have a little more fun? Complete THREE projects that contain both digi stamps offered here and you will receive a $3 Gift Voucher from Shelly's Images AND a $3 Gift Voucher from Digi Stamps 4 Joy!!!
  • Remember to follow all rules above when completing additional projects
  • Each project MUST be in a separate blog post at your blog and contain the links above

Once you have completed three projects you will need to send an email to Shelly and Margy to get your $3 voucher. Shelly's email address is shelly@shellysimages.com and Margy's email address is info@digistamps4joy.co.za. Be sure that this email includes a link to ALL THREE of the blog posts using BOTH digi stamps. Emails need to be received on or before April 1, 2013. The voucher offer expires after April 1, 2013.
Sounds super fun right?
