GRATITUDE {POP Challenge 20}

This month our theme for Challenge #19 at Path of Positivity is 

GRATITUDE

I used the following beautiful image from Digistamps4Joy - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to DigiStamps4Joy's Online Shop (thank you for the privilege to use this beautiful image) :



The image and sentiment has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The buttons, ribbon bows and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .

  



We are extremely pleased to announce that Gloria and Julie O. are our Guest Designers for the November challenge. Gloria and Julie are also on DigiStamps4Joy's design team with me.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to their blogs to see their beautiful creative work.
