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.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 75 - Easel card

Sandra picked the theme for Challenge 75 at The Glory of Christmas - Easel card

I normally scan my cards, but had to take a photo of this one as it was an easel card.  It is very dull here today so the photos aren't very clear.  I took the first one with the light on and no flash.  Second one with the light off and used flash.
I made a very simple Easel card following the instructions on Beccy's Place

I have used paper, precoloured image and sentiment from Polkadoodles Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD.  Music is from Gecko Galz Christmas Carols 2 collage sheet.  Added punched holly leaves and rhinestones.

I hope that you will go over to The Glory of Christmas and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

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