DS4J Challenge #90: Easter / Spring

It's that time of year again and a time I personally do not take for granted.  Digistamps4Joy is hosting a Easter / Spring challenge and I chose Easter because it is so important.

The background was stamped with a Chiswick background stamp and once I started stamping I only realised they look like little crosses!

Main image: Floral Cross

Sentiment: My own and quoted from "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

and related to this verse:

1 John 3: 16: "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us."

PS: If you are a brother or sister in Christ I wish you a joyous celebration in remembering our Saviour's Grace and Mercy in His sacrifice!! May we be reminded of the great price that was paid for us.  Not by works but by Faith!

I'm hosting MAWTT: CASE the Sketch!

Here's a bit of a challenge with a twist at Moving Along with the Times and I'm HOSTING!!!

Sometime last year I found a challenge that invited everyone to share their "ugly" cards.  This card below was one of my very first cards (THREE YEARS AGO!!) and I thought it quite ugly and flat.  So here's the challenge:

Use my card below as your SKETCH!!!
 
You can decide where you want the sentiment (if any) as you'll see from the fabulous cards from the DT. Please head over there!!

Here's my hopefully MUCH improved card!!

The background DP is from Prima "Lady Bird collection".
The central flower was die-cut and stamped from Marianne Collectables COL1303
Sentiment: Unity Stamp Co's September 2013 kit of the month.

Please CASE my "ugly card" as a sketch and join us at Moving Along with the Times!!!

Last DT card for TTCRD

So my stint at Through The Craft Room Door has come to an end and it is with mixed feelings I'm sharing my last card as DT. But definitely not the last time I'll be on TTCRD's blog since I plan to visit with the challenges :D

This week's sponsor is PAPER SHELTER and I chose this very cute giraffe couple from the "Giraffes on Holidays" set.

My background paper was made by placing strips of washi tape and then stamping over it with a flower from Unity Stamp Co's November 2013 Kit of the month.  The sentiment is from the December 2013 Kit of the month.

Please join us with your creations at Through The Craft Room Door!!

Adios and thank you to Sandi & Colleen from TTCRD for the very hard work behind the scenes.

DS4J Challenge #88: Vintage

Here's a nice challenge at Digistamps4Joy to get your Vintage on!!! 

As usual I like to show that you CAN do CAS & VINTAGE!!  I used gorgeous paper from Joy! Crafts (Vintage paper bloc) and the car from DS4J called "Dad's Austin". Margy did a drawing from a car that belonged to her late Dad!! The Spanish sentiment is from Papertrey Ink (my hubby's from Argentina).

To all vintage car fans out there I would have to apologise that I had no idea how to color this!  So if there is green paint where chrome should have been and vice versa, sorry!! ;D

Take out your vintage images, paper & embellishments (if any) and join us!!
