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.

Lacy Sunshine challenge 57 - Topsy Turvy Mismatch
Challenge 57 at Lacy Sunshine is Topsy Turvy Mismatch (take an image clearly meant for something and make it for something mismatched)
Each month Heather kindly gives us a free image to join in the challenge.  If you make a card with a Lacy Sunshine stamp you can request the next month's stamp for free.   If you haven't already joined in you can buy this challenge digi for half price during the challenge.

The loyalty digi this challenge is Zoe's love.

I have embossed green card with Cuttlebug holly with berries, coloured berries with markers.  Added pattern paper from Nordic Designs paper pad and Merry Christmas washi tape.  Added punched holly leaves and added rhinestones.   Printed Lacy Sunshine stamp Zoe's love, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.  Layered all onto red card.

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