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 160 - recycled scraps

The challenge at Fun-day Friday this week is use recycled scraps
Our sponsor this week is Kenny K Stamps

I have layered scraps of pattern paper from Christmas basics 12x12 paper pack left over from other cards onto piece of left over green card.  Happy Christmas stamped onto scrap of white card and edges trimmed with scalloped scissors.  Printed Kenny K precoloured digi stamp Christmas shopping  onto scalloped circle from Pininkie (I changed it to an oval).and  layered on top.
(You can also buy this digi stamp as a black and white stamp for you to colour)

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