SIMPLE THINGS ... {DigiStamps4Joy Sunday New Releases}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: NEW RELEASES}

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.
I am here with a design team project for our  new releases over at DS4J's shop this Sunday.  I have used this pre-coloured NEW RELEASE images called SKIPPIN LOU to which I have added a background in Photoshop CS3.

Hop over to DS4J's blog and have a look at the gorgeous creations  my talented design team mates have created with some of the wonderful new release images.
The pearls, brad and design papers are from my stash.  The flower embellishment has been made with folded paper squares. The crochet flower has been made for me by a very special friend.
The sentiment I have sourced from the internet.


I am entering the following challenges with my creation - thanks for having me: 

613 Avenue Create - ATG + Shabby Chic Option

Scrapbook Stamp Society - ATG + Summer Option
 Leaving you with another crochet project I recently finished.
Its called BLUE SKIES OF AFRICA.  It was fun designing this sampler throw as I went along.
 Thank you for your wonderful visits here and all the love you leave behind.

  34. Great scene you created for your card. I also love your crochet throw and nice to see someone enjoying crochet aside from paper crafting like I do. So sorry for the delayed comment, just been super busy. Thank you so much for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you some encouragement from God's Word in Ephesians 2:10 which says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Be blessed!
