GRATITUDE ...

{DT Project Path of Positivity: Challenge #8}

This week our theme for Challenge #8 at Path of Positivity is THANKFULNESS.  I used the beautiful Wisteria Blossoms from DigiStamps4Joy who is one of our sponsors this week. You can purchase it here.   I have also used MISTERI - PRETTY KITTY from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find her hereThe wonderful and inspiring sentiment, all about thankfulness, was also designed by Lisa herself.

The design papers and buttons are from my scraps file.  The images were coloured with Copics and the buttons and raffia are from my stash.  The butterflies were stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps and fussy cut.





The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:

The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
  • Ten digital images from Creative Bug Digitals for the person out of the top seven who receives the most votes during voting week.
  • Three digital images from Ike's World for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • A prize of any FIVE images from DigiStamps4Joy, our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
  • One digital designer paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles as well.
    Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your THANKFULNESS creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.8. Can't wait to see your THANKFULNESS creations.  Receiving a free sentiment just for entering the challenge should be a great incentive in itself - and Lisa's sentiments are wonderful judging by the one I used on my card.
       
    Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
    Thank for all your friendly visits here in my little space in blog land.  The love you leave behind is so inspiring, and please know that I try and return the love, most of the times.  Signing off with a photo I took a few years ago on a game farm in KwaZulu Natal - typical African bushveld.
