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.

Fun-day Friday challenge 158 - Cut it up

Fun Day Friday challenge 158 - is Cut it Up, use dies and machines with paper piecing.
and our sponsor this week is Robin's Fetish

I embossed mauve card with paw prints embossing folder.  Added doily and butterfly die cuts.  Printed Robyn's Fetish stamp which was given to me Kitty Kitty Kat 3 times and paper pieced it.
Added sentiments from Digital Scrapbooking  Studio.
Layered all onto purple card.   My scanner doesn't scan colours properly and the purples look blue in the scan.

I had problems making this it as I rarely use die cuts due to my bad hands and I don't have many. 
 For paper piecing  I managed to do three layers of the cat.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following
