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.

Penguins at the Christmas Card club

The theme for this fortnight at our Christmas card club is penguins

I have used two pre coloured penguin digi stamps form Pink Gem Designs.  Have layered them onto papers from Pink Gem Designs.  Two papers from the Merry and Bright set and one from the Penguin frolics set.   I am so fuzzy headed with the fibromyalgia that I actually bought the Pengruin frolics set twice.  Have added the Pink Gem Designs Magical Christmas digi.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges

C.R.A.F.T. challenge 263 - Christmas
