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.

Christmas card club - vintage

It is Rachel's turn to choose the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has chosen vintage.

I have used paper, precoloured digi and sentiment from Create with  TLC.

If you would like to have a look at the cards made by the others in the Christmas club their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog.

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

12 months of Christmas cards link up challenge 4

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

Super card Margaret. Takes me back to when I was much younger . Our church had a brass band and we used to go around the streets with them and sing Christmas Carols while the band was playing. Wonderful memories. Christine x
