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.

Lacy Sunshine challenge 41 include a window

Each challenge Heather kindly gives us a free image to use in the Lacy Sunshine challenge.  If you make a card using a Lacy Sunshine image for the challenge you can request the next one free.
This fortnight the free image is Izzybella Button Boo's Secret Window.
I didn't have to request it as I already bought it when it first came out.

I have layered Izzybella Button Boo's secret window onto paper from Bearly Mine Designs "A Load of Ole Bricks" digi paper and coloured her and her window and buttons with markers.  Added punched leaves and buttons for the flowers.  Coloured piece of white card with marker and stamped Thinking of you, then punched out with oval punch and layered onto the top.  Layered all onto white, then green card.
I would also like to add this card to the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge

Fan-Tastic Tuesday anything goes, twist add a button or buttons
