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.

Not Just Cards challenge 24 - anything goes

Please see my previous post for the blog hop.

Not Just Cards challenge 24 - anything goes
and our wonderful sponsor for the challenge this month is Aliciabel
challenge blog:

I have printed Aliciabel stamp onto tag and coloured her with markers.  Stamped Hero Arts Happy Christmas.  Sponged background with distress inks.  Added star rhinestone.  Punched hole and added eyelet.  Threaded twine through eyelet.

When I bought this stamp last year it came as a separate stamp but now it is part of a set Mermaid in Christmas.  So you get two stamps one with legs and one with a mermaid tail.

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

See my previous post for the blog hop.
