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.

Deedee's Digis September digi of the month challenge

Each month Deedee kindly gives us a free set to use for the challenge

If you make a card and join in the challenge you receive the next month's free set.  This is September's set "Leaf Your Cares Behind"

This is the card I made tonight.
I have layered the elephant from the set onto paper from Create with TLC Fashionable Fall paper set.  (I have lightened it so you can read the sentiment)
Added the sentiment from the set and extra leaves.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments 139 - Fall fun and a sentiment
