Challenge #177 - Use a Doily

Good Morning,

Pat here, your host for our new challenge this week, but first of all we would like to thank you for all the lovely projects we received last week.  Please scroll down to the post below to find our Winner and Top 3 and congratulations from all the team.

On to this week's challenge which is:


We have a great new sponsor this week:

Digi Stamps 4 Joy

South African crafters are still new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010 –Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) .  In May 2012, Margy Kieser took over ownership of DS4J, and there are now two South African artists who contribute to the more than 500 images available. Margy has taken the store to new heights and the shop now sells digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. We have PAYPAL for our international customers, and PAYFAST and EFT for the local South African customers.  Digistamps4Joy offers a monthly freebie on the first Friday of every month, and holds regular bi-weekly card challenges that draw entries from many international card makers.
We (DS4J) are also active on Facebook ( and Paper Craft Planet (

The Design Team were lucky to have images from our sponsor to play with and also one of their Design Team included this beautiful card in our Challenge and also gave us a little information about herself.

My name is Lynda Lindley and I have been crafting for over twenty years, starting out first stamping and then expanding into all areas of paper crafting.  I live in Washington state with my husband, two daughters and one crazy smart girl dog.  A self proclaimed challenge junkie, I do not feel grounded unless I am creating something.  When I am not coloring, stamping, painting, knitting or scrapbooking I can often be seen with inky fingers volunteering at my daughter's school in the library and teaching art in the classrooms.  You can find me online here

Lynda has used Cooee Chloe which can be found  here

Our GDT for the month of June with her last card as Guest Designer, but I am happy to say that Alli will be staying as a permanent Design Team member, well done and welcome to our lovely team.
