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.

Lacy Sunshine 66 - back to school

Challenge 66 at Lacy Sunshine is back to school
Each challenge if you use a Lacy Sunshine stamp you can request the free image for the next challenge.
The free image for this challenge is Eleanor and Pickles back to school.  If you didn't join in the last challenge you can buy this digi at a special price at  (scroll down on the home page to the challenge digi)

I have printed the Lacy Sunshine stamp onto white card and coloured with markers.   Added sentiment from Create with TLC and layered all onto red card.
I didn't add any embellishments as I wanted to enter a clean and simple challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Creative Corner challenge - back to school

Fussy and Fancy 147 - back to school

Glitter n Sparkle 153 - anything goes

Happy Little Stampers - clean and simple September challenge - colouring

Inspiration Destination - anything goes

Paradise of Stamps - school

If you give a crafter a cookie - inspiration photo back to school
