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.

Embossed Kraft card with Crafts Concept "Woodgrain" embossing folder.  Added strip of paper from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad "Mint Twist"  Printed Sweet Pea Stamp "Holly" by Rebecca Sinz onto white card and coloured with markers.  Layered onto green and then over paper and card.  Punched holly leaves and layered on top.  Added rhinestones.  Cut sentiment from the Mint Twist paper pad, layered onto green card and then onto top.  Layered all onto red card.
