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.

Merry Monday No 64

I have made two cards today for the Always Playing with Paper, Merry Monday No 64,
This is the sketch
 and these are my cards.  Unfortunately the embossing doesn't show up very well in the scans.

Card 1:  White card embossed with Cuttlebug 3 Kings embossing folder and then stamped  Penny Black "Christmas Wishes" stamp.  White card layered onto red card.

Card 2:  White cad embossed with Crafts Too - Sleigh embossing folder then stamped with Penny Black "Christmas Wishes" stamp.  White card layered onto red card.
