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.

Sweet Pea Stampers challenge "Purple Power"

It is time for another challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers
The challenge for this fortnight is "Purple Power".   Purple is my favourite colour and I love Sweet Pea Stamps.  This is the card I made for the design team.
I have embossed mauve card with Crafts Too "Butterflies" embossing folder and layered it onto purple card. Have printed out Sweet Pea digi stamp "Come Softly" by Ching Chou Kuik, coloured her with markers and chalks and layered onto purple card and then the mauve card.  Punched butterfly with my new Martha Stewart "monarch butterfly medium" punch bought from Craft Queen last week.  Punched flower and added middle flower made with clay and flower mold from Stampin Up.

You can buy Come Softly digi and she is also available as a rubber stamp here

Go over to Sweet Pea Stampers and have a look at all the lovely projects by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Sweet Pea stamp but if you do you have a second chance to win a prize.
