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.

Fat-tastic Tuesday No 2 and Fab n Funky No 172

I made this card today for two challenges
Fat-tastic Tuesday No 2 - sketch plus flowers
Fab n Funky - ribbon or lace

 This is the sketch which I have rotated to the left.
I have stamped Stamp World "Vertical Happy Birthday" onto pink card and then embossed the pink card with Cuttlebug "daisies" embossing folder.  Printed Heather Valentin "Snappy Dragon" from her Flower Pot Pretties from Lacy Sunshine onto blue paper.  Coloured her with distress and Kaszazz markers and placed onto pink card.  Added blue and white striped RIBBON to pink card.  Punched blue and pink card with Stampin Up punches and layered on top and added flower and brad.  Then layered all onto blue card.

Lacy Sunshine is the official and only authorized shop to sell Heather Valentin images.
