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.

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.

Faery Ink facebook challenge - pastel colours

The challenge at the Faery Ink facebook group is use pastel colours

I have printed out the lovely Faery Ink digi stamp "Teerah" that was free on the Faery Ink blog yesterday and will be in the shop soon.  Cut her out and coloured her with markers and the wings with glitter pen.  Layered her onto pink butterfly paper.  Added lace which I coloured pink with markers.  Added sentiment from Sweet Shoppe designs (which I recoloured pink).  Added pink rhinestones and pink rhinestone butterfly.  You still have another day if you would like to join in this challenge when ends on 30 April.

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