Layout: clean&simple #312


To everyone being hit by the heavy snows we saw on the news - Be Careful Out There!!

Christmas Giraffe

Hi everyone

On the home front I am sitting with a little girl with a broken leg and that has been a bit like having a new baby in the house. Poor angel is very brave but very dependent again on Mom!

I did have some time to make a card for my fellow DS4J DT member, SARA who is also over at the Naughty or Nice Challenge blog. Their challenge? Holiday Animals.
Margy (owner at DS4J) created this very cute "Giraffe with Christmas lights" and it immediately popped to mind when I saw the challenge.
Fonts used for sentiment:
African
Angelic War
 I used the layout from Happy Little Stampers (NOV) again:
Have a GREAT day everyone!

DS4J release STAGE

And here is my third release today at Digistamps4Joy. You can either use it as a type of background as I did here or as a frame for a sentiment / image:
My sister is in Musical Theatre (teaching, producing, directing, choreography, script writing ... you name it) and this reminded me so much of her!  And then I had the perfect sentiment to go with it! (GinaK Designs Petals & Wings)

The beautiful drama lady is "Gwyneth" (Margy)

So here's to dreaming BIG!

DS4J release 20s HATS

Here's one image used from my set of 2 '20's HATS' for Digistamps4Joy:
I paper pieced the hat and lifted the front edge off with foam tape. A little Sekura stardust pen adds a faint shimmer to the lacy strips.

Fonts used:
Baroque Antique
Park Lane NF

I used the layout from Happy Little Stampers (I LOVE their CAS layouts!!)
 
The second image in the set is on a hat stand:

DS4J challenge 104 Preparing for the holidays or fall

Oh how I miss Autumn!  Here we have already experienced high summer temperatures and I just melt! Rather give me cool or even cold weather so I can function!  So at Digistamps4Joy we are PREPARING FOR THE HOLIDAYS OR FALL. I'll be with my Northern Hemisphere friends in spirit :D
Here's my card using some of the images in my Winter Warmers set:



The background snowflake strip was stamped with GinaK Designs "Snow One Like You"
