Great News!

If you haven't heard yet, I am one of the proud new members of the digistamps 4 joy design team!  I am just so thrilled to have been accepted, and am having a BLAST working with all of these wonderful ladies!

On that note, we have a new challenge for you!  This fortnight's challenge is a color challenge...Red, White and Blue!  Now, being from the USA when I hear that color combo I immediately start thinking flags, fireworks, and the 4th of July.  However, since digistamps 4 joy is based in South Africa, I really wanted to go somewhere different with this challenge.  So, here's my card, using the adorable Summer Ice Cream:

The image was colored using Copics and Glaze Pens.  The papers are from We R Memory Keepers' Yankee Doodle line.  I've been listening to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes a lot over the past few weeks, and they have a fabulous cover of this song.  When I decided to use this image, the song lyrics seemed just perfect.

Now go on over to the digistamps 4 joy challenge blog to meet the new Design Team and see their fabulous creations.  Remember, you can use any image to enter the challenge, but we would LOVE to see you use a digistamps for joy image.  You can visit the store here.

Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon!
