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.

Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Fussy cutting (cut out something with scissors)

The challenge at Whoopsi Daisy this week is fussy cutting (cut out something with scissors)

I have embossed green card with Stampin Up embossing folder.  Punched hexagons from pieces of pattern paper from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad Violet Crush and layered onto green card.  Printed Whoopsi Daisy image from sheet No 601 onto white card, coloured with markers, cut out with scissors and layered onto green card.  Stamped Best wishes, cut into hexagon and layered onto green card.

I hope you will go over to Whoopsi Daisy and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Whoopsi Daisy image but if you do and you are the winner you will win 2 sheets of Whoopsi Daisy images.  If you don't use a Whoopsi Daisy image and you are the winner you will receive 1 sheet of Whoopsi Daisy images.

You can buy the lovely Whoopsi Daisy images at
There are also some free images there.
