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.

Karleigh Sue Christmas in July challenge reminder post

It is my turn to share an inspiration card for the Christmas in July challenge

A very simple card.
I have embossed green card with Craft Concepts "Festive Tree" embossing folder and coloured part with glitter pens (the glitter doesn't show up in the scan). Printed Karleigh Sue stamp "Peekaboogift" onto white card, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.
Sentiment from Create with TLC.

I hope you will join in the challenge, you still have the rest of July to join in.

The Christmas elves bundle stamp set is on special at the moment at the Karleigh shop.  10 elves plus a bonus holiday seal

We also invite you to join our facebook group
