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.

Archi Scraps July challenge

Following is the inspiration photo for the Archi Scraps July challenge.  The added criteria is to add a pin
This is the photo
 This is the ATC I made today.
I used the spiral for my inspiration.  I printed out Sweet Pea digi stamp "Moonstones Mermaid" by Elaine Cox (she is sitting on a spiral) and coloured with markers.  

I bought some pins at the beginning of the month especially to use for this challenge.  I lost track of the date and realised today it was the last day of the month.   I made the ATC and forgot the pin so I had to take it apart to add the pin.  It had a pearl at the end so I put it in the mermaids hair.

There is just a few hours left if you want to join the challenge.
