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.

My cards for the Lollipop Ladies No 60 Candy Canes

I made three cards for the design team for Challenge No 60 on Lollipop Ladies
I don't know which one will be put onto the site tomorrow so I will post all three here.   I am putting these on tonight as I won't have time in the morning.

This was the challenge:  "Candy Canes" (with additional challenge of Spirals)

Card 1: Craft Concepts embossing folder “Candy Canes”.  Stampin Up paper, washi tape.  La La Land stamp “Christmas Elf Marci”. Glitter on end of hat.

Card 2: Paper from Cosmo Cricket “Dear Mr Clause” 6x6 pad, washi tape.  La La Land stamp “Christmas Elf Marci”. Glitter on end of hat.

Card 3: Hand dawn spirals.  Stampin Up “Merry Minis” stamps punched with “Merry Minis” punch pack.
Simply Betty Stamps “Candy Cane London” (spirals in hair).  Slick white Kindy Glitz under candy canes and elf to look like snow but it doesn’t show up in the scan.
