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.

Lollipop Ladies 68 & Imagine That No 6.

It is my turn today to put my card on the Lollipop Ladies site for Challenge No 68.
I have used the free image for challenge No 6 from Imagine That so I will also enter this card into that challenge.

The challenge for Lollipop Ladies is Sour Cola Bottles with the additional challenge of glitter.
 This is my card
 I had problems thinking what to do with this one.  Then I found some paper someone had given me (I can't remember who) that was the right colours.  I layered the paper onto Kraft card from Stampin Up and added butterfly washi tape.  I printed out one of the free digi stamps from the set of stamps that Kris kindly gave us for Imagine That challenge 6 onto cream card.   I was lucky to find her at the beginning.  Now if you want to join the challenge  you buy the set of stamps and then you will get free stamps for the next challenge.
I coloured the stamp with Distress pens and layered onto paper, added glitter to the middle of the stamp and under the washi tape and on one of the flowers on the paper.  It doesn't show properly on the scan.

Come on over to Lollipop Ladies and Imagine That and join in the challenges.

For Lollipop Ladies guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
and our sponsor this fortnight is: Mad for Markers*
(thanks to Sammi).
A choice of 3 of her M4M digi stamps.
