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.

Beccy's Place October challenge plus others

The challenge at Beccy's place is anything goes with a Beccy's place image

I have printed the precoloured freebie stamp Beccy kindly gave us yesterday "Frank", layered onto green and then onto paper from Pickled Pot Pouri Victorian Frosted snowflakes paper set.  Layered coloured Merry Christmas on top.  Printed out 3 poinsettia flowers, cut them out and layered on top.  Layered all onto green and then white card.

I would also like to enter the following challenges:

Completely Christmas - Anything goes with a twist - poinsettia

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes covered with patterned paper

Holly Jolly Christmas challenge - snowman

  3. What a wonderful card Granmargaret, I love the colour scheme... the pink and green work beautifully together. I also like the addition of the poinsettia flowers at the bottom of the image panel, and the "Merry Christmas" at the top. Fabulous card!

  4. Wonderful snowman and great layout. Thanks for sharing with us at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge.
