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.

Not Just cards challenge 23 - 3rd item

This is my third item for Not Just Cards challenge 23

Another one of our sponsors for this challenge is Julia Spiri.  I love her cute images so had to make a card with one of them
There is also  a challenge blog
and facebook group

Embossed pink card with footprints.  Added piece strawberry pattern paper from Imagine That Tooty Fruity paper set and strawberry ribbon.  Printed Julia Spiri digi stamp "Girl with Teddy" onto white card, cut out, coloured with markers and layered on top.  (I have left the strawberries on her dress white as I couldn't see too well when I was doing the colouring.).  Added typed sentiment.

I hope you will go over to Not Just Cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would also like to invite you to join the Not Just Cards facebook group
