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.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - 61 plus Fundraiser reminder - plus snow day in the Blue Mountains

It is cold and wet here in Sydney today, but colder at my youngest daughter's house in the blue mountains.  They have had 8 inches of snow and had no electricity for 3 hours this morning.   The highway is closed.   I will add some photos at the end of this blog post.

This is the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week

You will remember I joined the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser blog hop on 14 July.  You still have time to join in  I hope you will go over to the hop and see the lovely work by those who have entered.
Some more digis have been added to the Fundaiser shop and more will be added next week
Lisa from Decosses Dynamite Doodles has kindly donated some lovely papers which have been added to the shop.
I have used Lisa's papers from her donated set Simple Beauty for my card but I have changed the colours.  Flowers and butterfly from Digital Scrapbooking Designs.

Angela couldn't go to work as the highway was closed.  The schools were closed.
Jack came by train to see Emily.  Angela, Brianna and Bridget walked to the park.

Super cute card and such fun colours. I can't believe that Sydney and the Blue Mountains are colder than us in Auckland New Zealand. That would be a first for us wouldn't it. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your creative talent with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

Look at all the snow! It is so weird for me to see it because it is Summer for us. I wouldn't think that it snows like this in Australia.
Wonderful card, love all the pink and your lovely flowers. Thanks for joining us this week. Hugs, Heide SSW2-DT
