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.

Creative Fingers challenge 81 - anything goes

Creative Fingers challenge 81 - anything goes
and our wonderful sponsor this week is Lemon Shortbread
It was A team's turn this week and I am on the B team but I loved this stamp when I saw it so had to join in.

I have printed out Lemon Shortbread stamp onto white, cut into oval and coloured with markers.  Layered onto pink card which I embossed with Cuttlebug roses.  Added pink lace, ribbon, punched flowers, pearls and butterfly brads.  Layered all onto dark pink card.
