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.

Creative Fingers challenge 24 on 21 February - anything but a card

The challenge at Creative Fingers this week is anything but a card
and our sponsor this week is Art by Miran
It is team A's turn this week and I am in team B but I love Miran's images so had to join in.  Miran gave us some lovely images to use.

I have done a double scrapbook layout.   Have layered  title in Word Art and sentiment from Create with TLC Kissed by snowflakes set,  onto paper from Create with TLC Snowflake Serenade digi paper set.  Typed journalling on the computer.  Printed Art by Miran Christmas digital stamp Snowflake and Girl, coloured with markers and layered onto paper.  Added photos.

They had a very unusual cold snap at my daughter Angela's in October 2012 which is the middle of spring here in Australia.  They had snow all night and all the next day.  Emily couldn't go to school as the roads were closed and the train line was closed so they had some fun playing in the snow.
It was the heaviest snow fall they had since they moved to the Blue Mountains in January 2007.

October 2013 it was the opposite they had very hot weather with above normal temperatures and bad winds and had to evacuate from their home because of the bush fires.   They were very blessed the fire was coming towards their house and the wind changed and it went in the other direction.  Houses not far from them were destroyed.

I hope you will go over to Creative Fingers and see the projects by the rest of the design team and join in the challenge.
