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 group - Happy Birthday Vannessa

Art by Miran made this lovely digi for Vannessa's birthday and  gave us
the lovely digi for free to make a card for the facebook group challenge - Happy birthday Vannessa.

I have embossed purple card with balloons embossing folder.  Printed Art by Miran digi girl 237 Happy Birthday onto white card and coloured with purple chalks and markers.  Cut out and layered on top.  Added lace and pearls.  Layered all onto mauve card.

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