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.

Not Just Cards challenge 22

I have exciting news.  The new owner (Lori) of Not Just Cards challenge blog has invited me to be on her design team.
Sadly Zoe had to step down as owner due to series illness.  We wish her all the best and hope she gets better soon.

Challenges are now monthly and anything goes

One of our sponsors this month is All Dressed Up who has given us some lovely digi stamps to use

Embossed yellow card with Cuttlebug daisies.  Printed All Dressed Up digi stamp I love my Puppy onto white card and coloured with markers.  (Colour of dress, band and flowers is purple.  I don't know why my scanner makes the purple blue).  Layered onto purple and then onto the yellow card.  Printed sentiment, cut out with fancy scissors and sponged edges, layered onto purple and then onto yellow card.  Added flower brads and punched butterflies

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following:

All dressed up 38 - anything goes

C.R.A.F.T. challenge 318 - technique embossing

Crafting with Friends challenge 1

Crafty Catz 286 - anything goes

Fun-Day Friday challenge 95 - anything goes

Penny's Paper Crafty challenge 234 - anything goes

Sister Act Card challenge 113 - cards only
