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.

Diane's Daydream Designs Christmas card for Christmas card club and other Christmas challenges

It is 12.20 am on Sunday 7 September here in Sydney Australia.
The challenge for 7 September on the Christmas Club has been set by Hazel - Something Starting with S.  and I have followed the sketch at 52 Christmas card throwdown

For S I have used snowflake paper, Santa and Santa's sack, sentiment and faux stitching.
Snowflake paper is from Diane's Daydream Designs Elegant snowflakes paper set.
Santa, Santa's sack and reindeer are from Diane's Daydream Designs.
Sentiment is from Diane's Daydream Designs Christmas Blessings sentiment set.

You can buy the lovely sets at
