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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.

Craftitude Challenge Anything Goes/Things beginning with the letter S

The challenge at Craftitude this fortnight is Anything Goes/Things beginning with the letter S
Our sponsors for this fortnight are:
Sassy Studio Designs
and Eureka Stamps
I made two ATCs for this challenge:

Card 1: I embossed dark pink card with spots, added strawberry spotted ribbon and a pink ribbon.  Printed Sassy Studio Designs digi "Strawberry Shortcake" and coloured her with markers and layered onto dark pink card, Added  stamped sentiment from a stamp set.  Layered all onto light pink card.

Card 2:  I embossed yellow card with spots and added spotted ribbon.  Printed out Sassy Studio Designs digi "Smurfette" and coloured her with distress markers:  hat -Salty ocean, hair - scatterd straw, dress - shaded lilac and stormy sky, shoes - stormy sky.  Skin with copic marker.

Sassy Studio Designs very kindly gave us each a digi stamp to use and I picked Strawberry Shortcake.  I already had bought Smurfette so I made two cards.

I hope you will go over and see the other lovely ATCs and cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You can enter any paper project.


  1. Nice cards! The first one reminds me of the doll "Strawberry Shortcake!" :)
