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.

Unstampabelles August challenge

August challenge at Unstampabelles is A significant birthday with the twist use/create a shaped card
and our sponsor for this month is Regal Craft
who kindly sent me two fan cards to use.  I have just used one for this challenge.   I have made the fan card but haven't decided what birthday to send it for yet.
Regal Craft also has other products as well as cards.

This is the front of my card
 and this is the back

For the front:  I painted with distress paints.  On the two outside ones I put bubble wrap onto the mauve section but it wasn't quite wet enough so the bubbles are not real clear.  I added punched leaves and flowers and fairy scrap pictures from my stash.  I have had these for a few years.
For the back:  I covered three with Alison Ellis fairy scrapbook paper and two with another paper I had in my stash.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely projects by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to enter this card into Suzy Bee's Bloomin challenge 40 anything goes
