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.

Gecko Galz April challenge - Easter

The challenge this month at Gecko Galz customer challenge is Easter

I have used paper from Gecko Galz flower power paper pack.
Precoloured image and sentiment from Gecko Galz In My Easter Bonnett digital collage set. Added punched flowers, rhinestones and butterfly.  The sparkle on the butterfly and the rhinestones doesn't show up in the scan.

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

  5. What a sweet card!

    I am actually popping in to wish you a very happy birthday (that is granted that I wrote it down correctly). I'm sorry I missed it on Monday. It has been a bit crazy around here with both myself and husband also having birthdays this week.

    I've got a couple free new papers over on my blog if you'd like them. One is a birthday cake themed paper and the other is frog themed.
