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.

Feeling Sketchy 118

Time for a new sketch at Feeling sketchy.
and our wonderful sponsor is  Bugaboo

The sketch for this fortnight

I have layered strip of purple paper over dance paper.  Added swirly bow from Polkadoodles Eden CD.  Printed Bugaboo stamp Ballet Dance Trio and coloured with purple markers and layered on top.  Layered sentiment from Ballet Dance Trio on top.  Added flower and brad.  Layered all onto purple card.

I hope you will go over to Feeling Sketchy and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - anything goes + a sentiment

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

  1. You certainly stayed true to the sketch this week, Margaret, and I love the result. Perfect color palette for your cute dancers!

  2. One of my favourite quotes - love the way you have illustrated it. Fab card. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Aud Sentiments and good luck in the draw. Ann xxx
