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.

Craftitude challenge 24 January

The Craftifude challenge for his fortnight is Anything goes/fluffy
Our sponsor this fortnight is Delicious Doodles who kindly gave us some digis to use

Here is my ATC for the design team for this challenge
 I have printed out Delicious Doodles "Snow Cuddles" and coloured with markers and added glitter to the stars.  Layered onto Imagine That Winter Flakes digi papers "Elegant Flakes purple".  Added glitter to the snow flakes.  Layered all onto purple card.

I hope you will go over to Craftitude and see the lovely ATCs and cards by the design team and join in the challenge.

You can make an ATC, card or any other paper project.

I would also like to enter this ATC into Open Minded Challenge No 2 - warmth (food or clothing)  My image is wearing warm clothing in the snow.
