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.

Another Australian Christmas card

I made this card this morning and it will be on the Mad for Markers blog today

I printed Mad for Markers digi stamp It's a Koala Christmas,  coloured with Copic markers and cut out.  Used blender ink on cloth to achieve the furry colouring.
Layered black and green card and black washi tape onto red card and layered Koala on top.  (The Koala stamp and cards were part of the world cardmaking day kit at the Mad for Markers shop)
Stamped Christmas Wishes, cut out and layered on top.

I hope you will go over to the Mad for Markers blog and see the lovely work by the other members of the digi design team
and also the original drawings by those on the colourists team.

I would like to add this card to the following:
