Store Bio - 
South African crafters are new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010  Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) http://www.digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/.  In February 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 store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. The store has PAYPAL, PAYFAST (South African) and EFT (South African) facilities.  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.

Prize - 5 images from they're online store

Please do visit they're store, there are loads of images from many different designers. You are sure to find something you want. And with these being digi stamps you can print them out again and again.

Hi, I am Bernardine Cuttino, kindly call me BERNI. I live in Santa Clarita, CA, USA, 40 miles   
North of Los Angeles. I guess you could say it is the High Desert, weather is triple digi's in the Summer and cold in the winter. In fact, there is snow on the mountains in the winter, very pretty.  Now if you go South towards the water, there is the beach. You have the best of both worlds.
I retired from Princess Cruises, the cruise line. I have travelled the world and visited all seven continents. 
My favorite place in the world is Italy. I also worked in the Motion Picture Industry for twenty years. I have worked with many actors and producers. I casted Star Trek the next generations, TV show.
I began scrapbooking and went into card making when I retired. I love to create and experiment with different techniques, and enjoy gardening. I am involved in the Women’s ministry at church. Living the life of the retiree. Always looking for inspiration and ready for a challenge. http://berni46.blogspot.com/
