Scrapper’s Delights Bloghop – congratulations!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters

Colossians 3:23


Hello,  welcome to today’s Scrappers Delights Bloghop post.

Alas my HOTP Chocolate dipped papercraft kit is nearly gone.  So what do I do with the scrappy bits left over?  I add a fabulous digistamp of course and make it look like it was made to go together!

I am using a fab free digistamp from Scrapper’s Delights.


The digistamp is available here and there are lots of sale bargains too!

The next stop is  Valerie.  

Enjoy the hop and don’t forget to pick up your freebie!

Here are today’s challenges: – anything goes – die cuts – use something old (papers )and new (digi) – book
