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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.

Chi Chi Memories freebie challenge

Chi Chi Memories freebie challenge Feb/March is use the February free image or another CCM image

I have layered the Chi Chi Memories free image for February onto green, then red, then Imagine That Christmas Snowflakes Paper green.  Coloured image with markers.  Added ribbons and star brads.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazelnut's 166 - Ribbons/Twines/fibres etc.
and Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge - anything goes
and Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Patterned Paper challenge
and Open Minded Crafting Fun challenge - use something green.

I have very sore eyes today so my colouring is not the best but I have managed to make 3 cards this morning.  This is the first one.
Thankfully I have my appointment with the eye specialist on Wednesday.  I normally go every six months as I have macular degeneration and glucoma, but he was away overseas in January/Feb so I had to wait till now.

I hope yo all have a happy week.
