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.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Sweet Pea Stampers challenge - Thinking of you/Missing you/Just because

The challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers this fortnight is Thinking of you/Missing You/Just Because

I have layered mauve pattern paper from my stash onto purple card.  Added strip of floral pattern paper from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad "Violet Crush" down the side.
Printed Sweet Pea digi stamp "Gentle Dawn" by Ching Chou Kuik onto white, coloured with chalks and markers, layered onto green, white and then purple and then onto the pattern paper.  Added punched butterfly and flowers and rhinestones.

I hope you will go over to Sweet Pea Stampers and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamp but if you do you have two chances to win a prize.

You can buy the lovely Sweet Pea stamps at
Gentle Dawn is available as a digi and a rubber stamp.
