About Me

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.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

My card for The Stamp Spot August challenge

This is my card for The Stamp Spot August challenge    orange, leaves and polkadots
Unfortunately my scanner hasn't scanned the colours right.  The flower and the backing card were a bright orange not yellow as in the scan and the wider ribbon is orange with white dots.  The other ribbon is lime green.
I used Stampin Up stamps and punch, ribbon and leaves.

This was the challenge

Love your spotty dotty ribbon Margaret. Don't you hate when you can't show the colours as they actually are - I recently made a card for a future challenge and used So Saffron but it has photographed like Daffodil Delight - a very bright yellow. Ho hum.

Thanks for joining The Stamp Spot monthly challenge again.

This looks great! Love your addition of the leaves behind the flowers. I found this months challenge really difficult (it's not called a challenge by accident, I guess!)
Thanks so much for joining us at The Stamp Spot
