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.

Sweat Pea August challenge 2013

Sweet Pea challenge for August is use your favourite technique
This is the card I made this morning
I have used my favourite things, purple, fairies, teddies, embossing, flowers, brads, washi tape, punches.

I have embossed mauve card with butterflies embossing folder, added washi tape, flowers and brad.  Cut a purple circle and embossed with Cuttlebug daisies and layered onto mauve card.  Printed out Sweet Pea stamp "Precious" by Connie Fong, coloured her with markers and layered onto purple card.  Stamped Stampin Up "Happy Birthday" onto white card and cut out with Stampin Up oval punch and layered onto purple card that had been cut out with Stampin Up scallop oval punch, layered that onto mauve card.  Layered all onto purple card.

I would also like to enter this card into Challenge 25 at Reddy Teddy Go - Use punches/die cuts.

I am sending this card to my youngest grand daughter who will be 5 on Monday 12 August.  Her favourite colour is also purple.
