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.

Outlawz challenge January

Each month a different artist gives us a free digi stamp to use in the Outlawz progressive freebie challenge.  If you make a card with the freebie you receive the next months digi for free.

This month we have an adorable image from All Dressed Up "Butterfly kisses girl"

I have printed "Butterfly kisses girl" onto white card and coloured her with different shades of pink copic markers and glitter gel pen.
Layered onto pink card and then onto new paper that Lozzy sent me for Christmas and then onto pink card.
Stamped Happy Birthday.
Added ribbon and flowers with rhinestones

I used sketch 378 at Tuesday morning sketches so I would like to add this card to that challenge.

I would also like to add this card to the following:
