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.

World Card Making Day - Pick your pal - Tic Tac Toe
After posting my card for line 3 yesterday I realised that I had used a digi stamp that Deedee gives away free on her shop

So I have made another card this time using another Deedee digi which is for sale on her shop.
I have followed line 2 and line 3 for this card.

Line 2 use ribbon, twine, hand colour image and send to someone for encouragement. (am going to send to a bear lover friend in the USA)
Line 3 use a non freebie image, use a button and a scripture verse.

I have used Deedee digi from Spring Blessings set, coloured with markers. Layered onto paper from same set and then layered onto pink card I embossed with buttons embossing folder.  Added sentiments from same set,  ribbon, twine and button.  Added punched butterflies.

You still have seven days to join in.
