Mid-Challenge #112 Buttons, Bows, Bling

Mid-challenge #112

      This challenge is hosted by Sara

 The theme for this challenge is
"BUTTONS, BOWS, BLING" 
Hi and welcome to May's challenge! I am Sara, this month's hostess, and I'm very excited to announce our newest theme -- Buttons, Bows and Bling! There are LOADS of possibilities with this theme and you can find plenty of fantastic digital images in the DigiStamps4Joy shop that you can use. Get out your ink, glue, markers, ribbons and buttons .... and don't forget the bling! Use your imagination, get creative, and remember that you have a whole month to submit your creations. I look forward to seeing what you whip up!
The challenge runs UNTIL 31 May 2015

Remember to link your projects up in Mr Linky. We would love you to use a DS4J image, but any stamped or digi image will be OK ..... you will get an extra chance if you do use a Digistamps4Joy image.


We have a GUEST DESIGNER working with us for this mid-challenge.
I am thrilled to introduce you to KT Fit Kitty who used the Leggy Lilly and Kitty image.



Hi, I’m Kitty and I am excited and honoured to be a Guest Designer at DigiStamps4Joy!  I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I just turned 50 last year. I am no longer able to work due to health reasons so I spend my time making cards!  I definitely craft on a budget!  I started my blog in June 2013, after being invited to join a design team. My card-making style would be considered “cute” and my favourite subjects are cats, mainly due to my three beautiful kitties, Honeydew, Kiwi, and Snowie. In case you’re wondering how I chose my blog name, KT are my initials, Kitty is a nickname, and Fit Kitty is my user name on a fitness web site I used to frequent.  Since I was already set up with the name Fit Kitty on Google and Gmail, I decided to stick with it. It would make me so happy if you would stop by my blog for a visit:  http://ktdesigns2013.blogspot.ca/.  Thank you, Margy, for having me as your Guest Designer!  Wishing you and your followers a joyful day!

And now, for some more inspiration from the talented DS4J Design Team "B"

It is Mother's Day here in South Africa on Sunday 10th May 2015, and I wanted to do something special for all my Newsletter subscribers.

Farewell to DT members

We bid farewell to some Design Team Members

GLORIA
Gloria joined DS4J on 1 January 2014 and has been an active and helpful member on our Design Team.

I and the team wish you a speedy recovery, and health and wealth to your body.

MARGARET GILMER
 Margaret joined DS4J on 1 December 2012 and has been a joy and diligent member on our Design Team. She not only shared her love of using digistamps, but her great love of cats - very often evident in her creations! Thank you for your friendship, loyalty, and creativity. I and the team take our red hats off to you and wish you a healthy road forward.

AUDREY
 
Audrey joined the DS4J team on 1 February 2014 and created some amazing cards for our challenges. Audrey's life became very stressful and busy this year, and she was finding it very hard to not only cope with all the new challenges in her life, but to make creations for our challenges as well. Thank you for your friendship and creativity, and it was a pleasure to get to know you. May the road ahead be paved with stones of peace and rest for you.
