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.

Black and white Christmas card

The challenge at Christmas card challenges is No colouring
the challenge at Fan-Tastic Tuesday is anything goes as long as it is square.

I have printed paper from Pininkie black and white Christmas digi papers and cut into square.  Printed Eureka digi stamp No 23502 and punched out with scallop circle punch.  Stamped Penny Black Christmas wishes onto white card and cute with scallop scissors.  Added 3 star brads and glitter to some of the stars on the paper.  (you can't see the glitter in the scan).  Layered all onto white card and then onto black card.

I would also like to add this card to Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge anything goes

and Crafty Hazelnut's pattern paper monthly challenge.


  1. Beautiful and Elegant, thank you for joining us over at Fan-Tastic Tuesday, we would love it if you joined us again next week for another fab challenge,

  2. Hi, Margaret! How are you? This is such a pretty card! I have that image from Eureka and never thought to use a scalloped circle with it. It looks really great that way. Great color combo, too. Thanks for playing with CHNC2.

  3. Thank you so much for joining my CHNC challenges and Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for January with your lovely card - hope to see you again soon. x
