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 Facebook progressive challenge

Each month Art by Miran kindly gives us a free digi stamp to join the facebook progressive challenge.  If you join the challenge you receive the next month's free.

I forgot to join the last challenge so I needed to buy this month's image "Rora and Butterfly" from the store.   If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's stamp and join in the challenge and then you can request next month's free.

Embossed light pink card with Cuttlebug spots and dots.
Printed doily from Scrappiness designs (changed colour) and layered on top of pink card.
Printed digi stamp onto white card, cut out and coloured with markers.  Added bow and layered on top of doily.
Stamped happy birthday, punched out with oval punch, layered onto scallop oval punch and layered on top.
Added punched butterflies, flower and brad.
