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.

Third project for Not Just Cards challenge 22 - anything goes

This is my third project for Not Just Cards challenge 22

Another one of our sponsors for challenge 22 is StarStampz who gave us some lovely digi stamps to use

I have made a page to put into my journal.  I bought a journal last year and decorated the cover in June last year and I haven't done any more till now.

I have printed out the StarStampz The Ugly Duckling onto white card and added a quote from Audrey Hepburn.
Painted image with Twinkling H2O paints, marker for the skin and glitter pen for the beads.  Background painted with Twinkling H2O paints and edges with Royal Velvet Glimmer Glam.  Added rhinestones.
I loved this image and even though I have already done two other projects I had to do one to use this image.

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) and join in the challenge.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Have an awesome week!
