You are both going to be missed ladies both your work has been fabulous and have been a joy to work with so on behalf of myself and all of the DT we would like to say a big big thank you for all your hard work and hope to see you both back in blog land with your fabulous work really soon.

We have a new GDT member joining us for the next 4 challenges and that is Emma Lockley

Welcome to our team Emma your work is stunning and i know you will be an inspiration to us all.

So onto this fortnights challenge which as been set by the lovely Maria and she as chosen the theme of:

Vintage / Aged

We have a new sponsor this fortnight and that is Roberta from Prairie fairy

Hello! I am Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs. I am a new digital stamp company featuring artwork not only created by me but also my two kids, ages 8 and 11. They are featured on the site as the Fairy Princess and the Prairie Prince.I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and have always loved to create. Two years ago my sister-in-law invited me to a rubber stamp party. I laughed and said "Maybe I will buy something if I can use it to stamp on canvases.". Needless to say, I was hooked! Two years later and a lot of learning about computers, I have finally accomplished my goal.
While digital stamping is relatively new in the paper crafting scene, it is what I believe to be such an amazing tool. Printed images have such clarity and vibrancy and gone is the need to re stamp an image because you didn't press hard enough or maybe you pressed too hard! They are also a lot easier to store and they can be reprinted over and over again. The fact that you can rotate and flip files, print them off the size of a postage stamp or as large as a scrapbook page makes them such a versatile medium. It is my sincere hope that I can help anyone who has hesitations about using digital images to embrace these amazing creative tools. If you have any questions about going digital, check out the site and the blog ( for more information, tips and tutorials. So head on over to and check it out!

Roberta is giving the winner the choice of 5 images of the winners choice.

So here's some Vintage inspiration from the DT using Roberta's fabulous images :
