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.

The Paper Shelter Challenge 102

This is my card for The Paper Shelter challenge 102 punches and dies
I have stamped Stampin Up stamp onto mauve card.  Embossed green card with Cuttlebug daisies.  Stamped The Paper Shelter digi stamp "Make a Wish" and coloured with distress markers and tria markers and chalk.  Cut out with Stamp in Up "framelit" die.  Punched EK success medium and small flowers and Carl butterfly and coloured them with tria markers.
Go over to The Paper Craft Shelter and have a look at all the lovely cards made for this challenge.
