Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.

Margaret, what a beautiful card. It is a lovely way to use our sketch at Feeling Sketchy. I love the background you have created, and then stamped silohette style. A lovely birthday card.
