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.

I made this birthday card today for my youngest grand daughter who loves dinosaurs and dragons and purple.  

I have used papers from Lozzy's Checkout and Its Stripes paper sets.

Clyde sentiment from Bugaboo.
Circles from Pininkie
Ribbon from Scrap Graphics.
Added three pearls.
