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.

Sketch Saturday No 283

This is the sketch at Sketch Saturday this week

This is my card
I have embossed green card with Cuttlebug "Christmas stars" , added Washi tape and layered onto red card.  Printed Kenny K digi stamp "City Star" onto white, coloured with markers and layered over washi tape.  Added pearls to end of each washi tape and around star.  Added glitter to embossed stars (it doesn't who on scan).

I would also like to add this card to Becky's Place Month of Holiday cards.

Kenny K's Craft Krew - pumps and pearls (I was told pumps means pump a lady on your card)
