DS4J Blog Hop and Challenge

CELEBRATION BLOG HOP 3-16 SEPTEMBER (starting time 11 pm on September 2, PDT)

Welcome to the Digistamps4Joy CELEBRATIONS. We are celebrating our 100th Blog Challenge with a Blog Hop running from 3 – 16 September 2014, a month long challenge, and ad hoc prizes during the month .

Our first challenge on our new blog was on the 23rd February 2012, and we are thrilled to still have you as our 'fans' after 2 and a half years! As a big THANK YOU to all of you, we are holding a BLOG HOP where you can win many prizes, including more of our fabulous digistamps! We have some new releases we are showcasing and which will be given away to some lucky followers. If you enter our challenge, you again put yourself in line to win more of our digistamps. And to top it all off, Margy will be throwing in some ad hoc prizes and discounts on the main DS4J blog ( during September! Join with us as we CELEBRATE!

You have arrived at Margaret's blog in Southern California.  I have been a member of the DT of Digistamps4Joy  since December 2012.  I cannot believe we have reached our 100 blog challenge mark already! I have been privileged to work with so many wonderful ladies on my team, and meet so many friends, and I look forward to the next 100 challenges.
Fabulous HOP Prizes
1. DS4J is offering 6 new digistamps as prizes on six of the DT member’s blogs to a randomly drawn follower of that blog and who has left a comment. The other DT member blogs will be giving away a previously released digistamp, also to a randomly drawn follower and commenter! In addition, some of the blog owners may have personal prizes which are only applicable to the country they live in. So come on in, meet our fabulous Design Team, and have some fun!

2. The main DS4J blog is also giving away 100 REWARD POINTS during the Hop to one lucky winner, which can be spent in the Digistamps4Joy store (! Now isn’t that a fabulous prize?

There are some rules for winning these prizes, so make sure you read these below!

Blog Hop Navigation
If you landed on my page first then just carry on to the next blog Margy, and then from the main blog again till you are back at my blog, OR start at the top at the Digistamps4Joy blog, and work your way though to the final stop (Zella’s blog). The full hop order is listed on the main DS4J blog.
 Here is the card I made for the Blog Hop.

For this card, I used the "Happy Birthday" digi from the online DS4J store.  I used the cut and paste feature on my Cameo to cut the digi, then colored it with Copics and added Stickles for shine.  You can win this digi if you leave me a comment below.
