LIFE IS BLISS ...

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #80}

Another design team project for our bi-weekly challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.80 is STITCHING (real or faux).  Our talented design team member, Ursula is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Ursula for choosing this awesome theme for us this fortnight.

Another centre step design.  I have used the MISTERI MEET ME image from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find her hereI have also used the background digi called COLOSEUM from DigiStamps4Joy and you can find it here.

The sentiment is from Create with TLC and you can find it here. The image has been coloured with Copics and the sentiment with dry chalks.  The folded flowers were created with a Fold It Swirls template.

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #80.


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 a photo I took of the lovely gardens within the complex we have moved to recently.
