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.

The East Wind challenge 11 - Beach

If you go over to The East Wind Challenge and sign up for the newsletters each month you will receive a free digi to join the first challenge for the month.    The Free digi this time is called Aurora "bubble gum and mint chocolate" and the challenge closes in 3 days.

Have layered The East Wind digi onto background by Diane's Daydream Designs Beach Getaway 2 and coloured her with markers.  Added other digis from Diane's Daydream Designs Beach Getaway 1.  Added sentiment from Create with TLC.

I would also like to enter this card into Fairytale challenge 97 - Sun, beach, sea

  7. Ice cream is definitely a summer food, but I sure would like for some of the ice cream places here in NE PA to be open year round. Sometimes you just get a hankering for ice cream in winter. LOL. I love how you colored this image. Great card. Thank you for joining us at OpenMinded Crafting Fun for our Summer Food challenge.
