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.

Lollipop Ladies No 77 and Scribble and Scrap No 2.

The challenge at Lollipop Ladies this fortnight is Macarons with the additional challenge of ribbons    this is the inspiration photo

This is the card I made today
I have picked out the roundness of the macarons and the colours brown, yellow, green and orange.
I embossed yellow card with Cuttlebug "Spots and Dots".  Printed out one picture from Scribble and Scrap "Vintage Girls 2" topper sheet.  Added spotted ribbons, flowers and brad and layered all onto brown card.

I also want to add this card into Scribble & Scrap challenge No 2  - Anything Goes

I hope you will join in both challenges.

A wonderful card Margaret. The way you've used the ribbons is fabulous and the vintage photo is delightful, especially with the matching flower.
