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.

Digistamps4Joy blog hop 7 July - 14 July
We had to make an easel card with glitter or sequins.  I have used glitter pens and rhinestones.

For the top half I have layered Digistamps4Joy digital stamp pondering fairy onto paper from Scrappers Delight Fairy Topia set.  Added 3 precoloured butterflies from the Fairy Topia set.   Coloured fairy with Prismacolor pencils and glitter gel pens.  Added rhinestones.
For the bottom half I have used paper from the Fairy Topia set and sentiment from Create with TLC fairies are invisible set.
