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.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 70 - more than 1 fold

Hazel picked the them for The Glory of Christmas challenge 70 - more than one fold 

I have made an easel card.   I usually scan all my cards but couldn't scan this one to show the easel card properly so I tried to take a photo but it didn't come out very well. 
So I have scanned it flat so you can see the image better.
I have used pattern paper, precoloured digi and elements and sentiment from Polkadoodles Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD.

I used the tutorial on Beccy's Place on how to make an easel card

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
