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.

I have made another journal page
I painted a yellow card with white gesso.
Sponged climbing vine stencil with Mowed Lawn distress ink
Painted diamond stencil with pure sunshine metallic paint.
Printed sentiment from facebook onto paper from Lozzy's mixed media paper set then tore out and layered on top.
Printed Whoopsi Daisy precoloured digi stamp from the new Linnie Pink Design's CD onto paper from Lozzy's mixed media paper set, tore out and layered on top.
Added flowers punched out of paper from Memory Keepers Travel light 6x6 paper pad.
Added glossy accents to flowers and added butterfly stickers.
