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.

Imagine That July digi of the month challenge - Christmas in July

I started this post on 1 July then forgot to come back and finish it.
Each month Kris at Imagine that gives us a free digi stamp set to join the Imagine That challenge.
If you haven't already joined in the progressive challenge you can buy this month's set at a reduced price, make a card for the challenge and you will receive next month's set for free.
This is the set for this month "Treat Stand"  which has Christmas and birthday images, papers and sentiments.

I also bought two other sets which co-ordinate with the free set which also have birthday and Christmas images, papers and sentiments.

This is my card using parts of all three sets.
I have used papers from Chef Freddy and Baking Chloe.
Sentiment from Baking Chloe.
Christmas precoloured images from all three sets.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments 135 - animal + a sentiment

Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas card challenge 236 include a sentiment.

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Pattern paper challenge - anything goes

Cute Card Thursday 380 - we love cake (there are cakes in the treat stand)

12 months of Christmas cards link up
There is also a design team call at the 12 months of Christmas until July 20.
