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.

Cute as a Button facebook group - progressive challenge

A new facebook progressive freebie challenge started on the Cute as a Button facebook group and will take part on the first day of each month.  If you join the group you can email for the first free digi Hawaiian Mermaid.  If you use the digi stamp to make a project you can then get the next month's free.

I sponged white card with blue and green distress inks, then spritzed with blue and green distress markers.  Embossed with Cuttlebug Divine Swirls.  Printed Cute as a Button stamp Hawaiian mermaid onto white card, coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Distress marker, cut out and layered on top.
Added fish brads and punched dolphins.

I hope you will go over and join the facebook group and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following:
