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.

Christmas card club

Mary picked the theme for this fortnight - use some type of mixed media with any kind of winter or Christmas tree.
I sponged distress ink over white card and then embossed the card with Craft Concepts Festive Tree embossing folder.
Coloured with markers and glitter pens.
Stamped Happy Christmas.  Added rhinestones.
Added stamped parcel, star brads and tree brad.

If you would like to see the cards by the rest of the Christmas club their links are listed down the left side of my blog

I would like to add this card to the following:
