Wednesday, 1 October 2014


Good morning its, Desíre here again.  Wow I have to pinch myself to realise that we are already in the 10th month of 2014.  Where is this year running too. It was 100 days to Christmas, just the other day and before we know it, there is only 50 days to go. Trust September was filled with loads of creative fun for you and I am sure your Christmas card stash is growing nicely. Thank you once again, to everyone who took the time to email me to request the DS4J 'Two-wit twooo' image, and thanks so much to those who have made a creation and linked it up to our September 2014 Christmas Challenge.  All the entries were once again so beautifully creative and brought Margy's little owls to life so wonderfully.

Each and everyone who linked their 'Two-wit twooo' creations during September, are a winner, as this wonderfully versatile sentiment set, is on its way to you:

... and here are stunning cards created by our talented Antoinette.

To those who have missed our September Christmas Challenge, its not too late, you are most welcome to join in the fun  from October.  We will offer a free DS4J Christmas image each month with which you can create a card or tag.

You need to enter your card or tag with this free image into Mr Linky below.  Each person who has created a card or tag with the month's free image, will receive the next month's image free.

Please email me at if you are keen to enter our October challenge with this wonderful sentiment, and I will get it off to you asap.

So now it's over to you - looking forward to seeing your Christmas cards/tags with this lovely sentiment set, in our October linky below.

Remember you must enter a project with this month's image to receive next months free image...
