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.

One Layer Christmas card challenge 10

One Layer Christmas card challenge 10 - anything goes with optional twist stars

This is the first card I made for this challenge

Sponged card with 2 different greens and red distress inks.  Stamped Stamp Rosa nativity star, Penny Black Christmas wishes and stars.

I have been using digital stamps mostly as they are easier on my sore hands but tried using woodmount stamps on this card.  I wasn't very happy with it as the ink is old and a bit faint, so I have made a second card which I will put on my next blog post.

I would like to enter this card into the following:

Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas challenge 229 - use some of your favourite things. (This was one of my favourite stamps before I discovered digi stamps)

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Inspiration Destination - anything goes
