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.

This is the card I made with one of the new stamps rg064 Daisy Bucket

I have torn piece of yellow card and embossed with Craft Too Butterflies embossing folder.  Torn piece of blue card and embossed with Cuttlebug daisies and layered on top.  Printed digi stamp onto doily, added butterflies from Scrappiness Designs.  Cut out and coloured with makers and layered on top.  Added punched butterfly, lace, ribbon, flower and brad.  Layered all onto blue card.

  4. Perfect torn edges and love the colour combination of the yellow with the blue. Like the idea of embosing the card after you have torn the edges off. I didn't think of that one! Thankyou for fluttering by # 30 hugs
