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.

Creative Fingers challenge 101

Challenge 101 at Creative Fingers is anything goes

and our wonderful sponsor this fortnight is SLS Lines

I printed SLS Lines digi stamp Sitting Girl with cute cat onto white card with a blue border and coloured with markers.  Added sentiment from Create with TLC.
I tried to do a smooshing background with distress inks following
Kari Webster KWCard Design
but I made a bit of mess and got more on the image.  So I printed out the image again, cut it out, coloured with markers and layered on top.
Layered all onto green card.

I would like to enter this card into the following:
