GDT Card Path Of Positivity Challenge #14 Wisdom

Good morning, Digi Stamps 4 Joy are so happy to be sponsoring challenge #14 at Path Of Positivity Challenge.This challenge runs from the 5th of May until the 1st of June. I am so pleased to be  asked to be a GDT a long with my very talented team mate Jackie. The theme is wisdom. Jackie used the image Cherry Blossom and i used the image Misteri's Mystery. Such a gorgeous image, you can tell by her face how much she enjoys reading. Wisdom means different things to all of us, knowledge throw books or older family members throw to life experiences whether we learn from them or make the same mistakes. The sentiment i used says take today to do something your heart has always dreamed of doing. This is so true we need to live today. My husbands step sister died when she was just 40, from a brain hemorrhage. She was the most amazing artist. She had just started to sell her work and gaining confidence in her ability.

8" White card blank

  10. Hey Julie-Ann,

    Looks like there was a bit of miscommunication as our midway post actually didn't go out until yesterday, May 19th, not last Monday, but that is okay. These things happen.

    Your card is just lovely. Misteri is coloured beautifully and I just love all the different die cuts you have used. Wisdom can definitely be interpreted differently depending on your perspective. I love how you, yourself, look at the image and see Misteri's thirst for knowledge.

    Thank you so much for joining us on behalf of DS4J as the GDT for the midway of our current challenge over at the Path of Positivity. It was wonderful having you as our guest.
