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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy Sunday New Releases

There are more new stamps released today at Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  You can see the new stamps and sample cards by the design team on Digi Stamps 4 Joy blog
and you can buy the new stamps at the Digi Stamps 4 Joy shop

This card uses one of the new stamps JL701 "Christmas Dreams"
I have layered Christmas Dreams onto paper from Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Dreams paper set and coloured her with markers and glitter pens.  (the glitter doesn't show up in the scan).  Added sentiment and layered all onto black card.

I hope you will go over and have a look at the lovely new stamps and the lovely work by the design team.
