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.

Inspiration post for Feeling Sketchy No 75

It is my turn to do the inspiration post this fortnight for sketch No 75
I have made a card and scrapbook page

For the card I have layered Imagine That digi stamps from Elegant Ornaments set onto Delicious Doodles purple digi paper from Christmas stars paper set.   Added ribbon.  Printed out verse from the Elegant Ornaments set and cut with Stampin up small tag punch and then layered onto purple paper cut with larger Stampin up punch.  Added purple star brad.  Layered all onto purple card.

For the scrapbook page I have printed out three photos of Brianna and layered them onto paper from Fizzy Moon Traditional Christmas decopage and paper pack.  Added ribbons.  Printed title, cut out and sponged edges, and layered on top.  Added sticker from Me to You Winter Wonderland sticker set.

You still have a few days to go over and join in challenge No 75 at

I also want to add these into Crafty Hazelnut's Monthly Christmas challenge - anything goes

I would also like to add the layout into Archi-scraps December challenge.  Do any Christmas layout with an embellishment.
