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.

Christmas card club - snowman

Lorraine C is hosting the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has given us the theme snowman.
I am a day early posting my card .  I have been sick for two weeks and am very fuzzy headed so don't want to forget.  I have just made a very simple card.

I have embossed white card with Cuttlebug snowflakes.  Printed Dearie Dolls free precoloured image "On the first day of Christmas", cut out and layered onto white card.  Added ribbon and layered all onto blue card.

Mary Ellen Smith gives a new image every day a coloured version and a black and white version.

Remember never share digital stamps even if they are free.  You can give the link to your friends and they can go and collect them for themselves, remind them not to share.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges.

Addicted to Stamps and More challenge 119 - clean and simple

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Emerald Faeries challenge 61 - non traditional colours

Fab 'n' Funky 235 - Christmas -
