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.

My special new digital stamp

I received a lovely gift to brighten my day yesterday.  Mi Rang Jung has made a special stamp for me of my grand daughter stamping.  You can buy it in her shop
She is called Brianna Stamping

Mi Rang also has a lovely freebie image on her blog if you become a follower

This is the first card I made with my new stamp.   My colouring is not the best as I have eye problems.

I have layered pieces of two papers from Imagine That "School day" papers onto purple card.  Have printed Brianna stamping, layered onto papers and coloured her with markers.  Typed sentiment with word art.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
Crafty Hazelnut's Pattern Paper challenge - anything goes as long as you cover your card with patterned paper
Card Makin Mamas 78 - Anything goes
Open Minded crafting challenge No 1 - Use new toys or use a new techique  (I am using new stamp)

I hope you will have a look at Mi Rang Jung's beautiful digi stamps.

Here are some photos of my grand daughter Brianna stamping with me in July 2013.  She turned 5 in August and is starting school next year.
