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.

Exciting news.

I have exciting news.  I am going to be on the design team for a new challenge blog.  The first challenge will be on 3 September - Julia Spiri challenge blog  Some lovely cards are already showcased on the blog.

In the meantime you can join in the first challenge on the Julia Spiri facebook group.
I can't join in the challenge as I am on the design team but I wanted to do a card to show you one of the lovely stamps available in the Julia Spiri shop

I have embossed pink card with Cuttlebug daisies.  Printed Julia Spiri stamp girl with cat onto white card.  Coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.
Stamped happy birthday, punched out and layered on top.  Added ribbon, punched butterfly, flowers and brads.

I hope that you can join our Julia Spiri facebook group and join in the challenge.
