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.

1st challenge at Karleigh Sue challenge blog is use pink ribbon

1st challenge at Karleigh Sue challenge blog - use pink ribbon  as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month
and this is my first card on the challenge design team

I have layered Karleigh Sue digi stamp "Soldier for a cause" onto paper from Pininkie Abstract Shards" paper set and coloured her with markers.  Added light pink ribbon and dark pink ribbon cut out.    My friend had the ribbon die at Stamp Club last month and I cut 4 out to use for something else but decided to use one of them on here.  Stamped Survivor and ribbon from a clear stamp set I have had for a long while, cut out and layered on top.  Layered all onto light pink card and then onto dark pink card.

My card is dedicated to my eldest daughter Lynda who is a breast cancer survivor.

I hope you will go to the blog and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.
