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.

Ching-Chou Kuik January challenge - use something new

The January challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik is use something new

I received a lovely Ching-Chou Kuik digi stamp today for joining in the birthday hop.

I printed the lovely Ching-Chou Kuik digi stamp Hello Magnolia onto white card.  Added splatters and extra butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  Sentiment from Create with TLC.  Coloured stamp with markers, Prismacolor pencils and glitter pens.

I would also like to add this card to the following:

Butterfly Challenge 45 - X is for Xanthine (yellow)

Inspiration Destination 67 - anything goes

Open Minded Crafting Fun 1 - something new (new stamp)

Word Art Wednesday 217 - anything family friendly with an encouraging or uplifing sentiment

Margaret, Happy New Year to you. What a pretty card you have made using a Ching-Chou Kuik image. She looks fab in tones of yellow. It fits the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month well of “Use something new”. Thank you for taking part and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Design Team Leader).
