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.

Art by Miran February Facebook progressive challenge

Last month I bought the special Art by Miran digi stamps to join the Facebiij progressive challenge which started in January.  Those who bought the image and entered a card into the challenge were able to email for this month's free image.

If you haven't joined in yet go to the facebook group and you will find the post with the link to buy this month's image, then if you make a card and enter the challenge you will be able to request next month's free image.

I have printed this month's free image onto paper from Pininkie diamond set and coloured her with different shades of purple markers (though the shawl looks blue in the scan, don't know why my scanner doesn't show the colours correctly).  Coloured the diamond with clear glitter pen.  The glitter doesn't show up in the scan.  I have then layered this onto purple card which I have embossed with Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder.  Added flower, brad, gems and dots of glitter on the paper and the purple card.  Layered all onto mauve card.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps 98 - embossing

Craft Your Passion 249 - anything goes

Glitter n Sparkle 124 - gems and glitter

Love to Scrap 48 - anything goes

Party Time Tuesday 195 - anything goes

Sister Act Card Challenge 93 - anything goes

Through the Purple Haze 78 - embellish and embellish
