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.

Mad for Markers - world card making day

I had an enjoyable day at the new Mad for Markers shop at Rockdale yesterday morning for World Card making day
Sammi had prepared some card kits for us and a sample card for us to follow.

If you were unable to go to the shop yesterday there are some challenges on the blog.

This is the card I made with the card kit using the Mad for Markers digital stamp
Kelly with Spring Crown (see blog).  Coloured with Copic markers.  Pressed piece of fabric wet with the blending solution to create the pattern on top.  Layered onto black, then blue, then pink card.  Added washi tape and flowers.

I also coloured another card while I was there which will be on my next post.
 I wasn't able to post this yesterday as after spending three hours at the shop my husband picked me up and we went straight down to my eldest daugher's house.  We didn't leave there till late.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination 105 - anything goes
