Challenge #108 - BINGO

This challenge is hosted by Asmah

The theme for this challenge is
 "BINGO"
Happy 2015 to our craft lovers and welcome to our 1st challenge of the year. I am proud to be hosting this challenge that surely gives you a kick start into getting more stunning images from Digistamps4Joy
My challenge is for you to pick one row either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally and create any paper craft projects. Sounds fun? What are you waiting for? Let's play Bingo, shall we.
 Take a visit to the Digistamps4Joy store and check out the wonderful images that we have to entice your senses, or use an image that you have. But if you use a DS4J image you will be eligible for the DT Choice prize of a $10 Gift Voucher to the store.


The challenge runs UNTIL 31 January 2015,
from Wednesday 14  - 31 Jan. 2015.

We would prefer for you to use a DS4J image from the store, but this is not necessary. However, to win the DTs Choice prize you WILL need to use a DS4J digi. Remember to link your projects in the linky below.
Don't forget you MUST use a digital stamp or rubber stamp!

Farewell, and changes in 2015

I and my Design Team would like to wish all my friends and customers a
HAPPY NEW YEAR for 2015.


Please note that as of 1 January 2015 the following changes have been made:

FAREWELL
Jen, one of the artists, has decided to stop drawing for DS4J, and her images are no longer available in this store. I would personally like to thank Jen for all her help, and all the wonderful drawings she made available for you to purchase. I trust you will continue to use her drawings on your cards, even though you cannot purchase them here any more. Her artwork will live on.

CHALLENGE CHANGES
Instead of the bi-weekly challenges on this blog, you will now have a whole month to make a card and enter! A new challenge will be posted on the 1st of EVERY month, to run for the whole month, with a mid-challenge post by the Design Team on the 15th of every month. This will give you oodles of time to get your cards into our challenge on the BLOG

NEW RELEASES
New images will be released TWICE a month, on every second Sunday, starting on 11 January 2015.  
Digistamps4Joy is still live and well, and raring to go in 2015! 
We look forward to your creations in our challenges.
Margy and her fabulous DT.
