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.

Beccy's Place month of holiday cards day 20

Day 20 at Beccy's Place month of holiday cards challenge is negative colouring and Beccy has a tutorial on her blog
I have embossed white card with Cuttlebug Christmas Stars embossing folder.
Stamped Santa Rosa stamp "The Montage Collection" with white ink onto black card and coloured the Angel with white pencil.  Layered black card onto the white card.
I have had this stamp for many years but don't use it very much now as it is hard to stamp out properly with my sore hands.

It is so hot here in Sydney today it is hard to think.  40C (104F) at my house and I don't have airconditioning.    I am dreading going upstairs tonight.  Supposed to be a cool change tomorrow morning.

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

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Creatalicious 81 - Merry Christmas

Hot here in Newcastle today, didn't go outside till around 6pm, had a lovely swim then we had dinner, all nice and cool, but we do have ducted air...hope you sleep ok...the change is on it's way here already.xx
