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.

A Bit More Time to Craft challenge 32 - anything goes

Challenge 32 at A Bit More Time to Craft this fortnight is anything goes
and our wonderful sponsor this fortnight is
Ching Chou Kuik
who gave us this lovely stamp to use

I can't see to colour small images so I printed the Ching Chou Kuik digi stamp Poppy Glamour large onto white card and coloured it with Copic Markers and glitter pen. I then scanned it and reduced it down and layered onto paper from Lozzy's lovely Anika paper set
Added extra poppies from Julia Spiri Watercolor Poppies flowers clip art
Added extra butterfly from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Added sentiment which is the bible verse for this month's challenge at Scrapping Everyday miracles

I hope you will go over to A Bit More Time to Craft and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge to win some of Lozzy's lovely papers

Remember you can get some of her free papers under the Freebie Friday tab on the blog.

We also invite you to join the facebook group
