Margy has 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren, and lives in sunny South Africa. Together with another SA artist (Jen) and a fabulous Design team, Digistamps4Joy is now a well known online digistamp store, and is still the only online shop for digistamps in South Africa. With nearly 1,000 digis to choose from, you will find unique, cute, humorous, or serious images to play with. DS4J gives away 1 freebie on the first Friday of every month, as well as 1 digi to a randomly drawn winner in our Monday Facebook challenge. Our Blog showcases the newest digis released every Sunday, and bi-weekly challenges are held.
