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.

Sketch Saturday 291 and Card Making Mamas 78

This is the sketch this week at Sketch Saturday
I have followed the sketch but used a square in the middle instead of an oval because that suited the stamp better.

Art by Miran is offering this lovely stamp free on her blog at present
Have a look at the lovely cards there and on her facebook page 

Embossed light pink card with Cuttlebug "Roses", sponged with distress ink.  Cut circle from dark pink card and embossed with Cuttlebug "Roses" and layered over light pink card.  Cut piece of pattern paper from Prima "Firefly" 6x6 pad and layered onto pink card.  Added ribbon.
Printed out free digi  "Rosie" and coloured her with markers and layered on top.  Layered all onto dark pink card.

I would also like to enter this card into Card Making Mamas challenge 78 - Anything goes.

and Open Minded Crafting Fun - Challenge 1 Use new toys or new technique (I have used another new stamp)
