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.

Archi Scraps January challenge

Archi Scraps January challenge was a picture of the opera house with the extra criteria of something musical
 I have done a very simple layout

I used the sails, water and sky as my inspiration.
I have used a picture of Lynda and myself at Zimzala restaurant which has sail like umbrellas.  The background has blue water and sky.
The background paper is "Beach" from Pink Gem Designs background papers clouds set.
I have stamped sea gulls and added fish and shell brads.
I have added music washi tape for the musical criteria.   Music was playing in the background.
