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.

Art by Miran - progressive Facebook challenge

Each month Art by Miran kindly gives us a free image to use in the facebook group challenge.  If you make a project and enter it into the challenge you can request the next month's free
If you didn't join in last month you can buy this month's image and join in, then you can request next month's free

I have layered Art by Miran digi stamp Vannessa the Teacher onto paper from Create with TLC.  Added sentiment from Create with TLC.  Coloured digi with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.
I used a pretty purple gel pen for the ribbons but the scanner has made it more blue.

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