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.

Reminder Julia Spiri facebook group challenge + other challenges

Just reminding you about the August challenge on the Julia Spiri facebook group

I have torn three pieces of pattern paper from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad "Violet Crush" and layered them onto purple card.
Printed Julia Spiri precoloured image "Gnome" (you can also buy this as a black and white digi stamp for you to colour).  Put her into frame and layered on top.
Printed sentiment from Ginger's House into oval scalloped frame from Pininkie (changed frame to oval and recoloured purple, though it looks blue in the scan) and layered on top.  Added butterfly brad and three purple rhinestone flowers.
This is another journal page for my journal I am making to leave for my family when the time comes.

I hope you will join the Julia Spiri facebook group and join in the challenge.

Also don't forget that the first challenge starts on the Julia Spiri challenge blog on 3 September
