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.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop
This hop is from a loyal group of Sweet Pea stamp fans who want to let Lynette know that we appreciate all her hard work bringing us the wonderful stamps in both rubber and digi format over the years.  Thanks so very much for all the wonderful images we have collected from you,

There are some random prizes along the way, as certain other blog owners have decided to include a prize, so please leave some comments along the way as you see everyone's gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp creations.

Also the store closes at the end of the day on the 25th November, so if you see some wonderful stamps on this blog hop, today is the last day to get them, so please drop by the store?
We are so sad that the shop is closing and hope that Lynette gets well soon.

You should have come here from Jennifer Scull but if you didn't you can start the blog hop at the Sweet Pea stamps blog .

I have layered two papers from Sugar and Spice Studio "Candy Christmas" 6x6 double sided card stock pad onto pink card.
Printed Sweet Pea digi stamp "Christmas Angel" onto white card, cut out and coloured with markers and glitter pen and layered on top.
Stamped sentiment onto pink card and layered on top.  Added star brads.
I have had this digi stamp for a long time and I am sorry but I don't think it is still in the shop.  I printed out another image and was going to make a second card but can't find it.  (I am always misplacing things)
