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.

Digistamps4Joy challenge 129 - anything goes with the twist make your own background

Challenge 129 at Digistamps4Joy is anything goes with the twist make your own background

I have layered Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp jl056 Joy onto torn paper from Lozzy's mixed media paper set.  I have layered this onto torn paper which I sponged with distress ink and spritzed with distress pens.  Added ribbon, flowers and brad and layered all onto yellow card.

I hope you will go over to Digistamps4Joy and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

We also invite you to join our facebook group.
