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.

Scrappers Delight facebook group progressive freebie challenge February

Each month Scrappers Delight kindly gives a free digi stamp to join in the challenge.  If you make a card for the challenge you can request the next month's free.

The freebie for this month is Story Time 4 (just the book page).  All the information can be found in the facebook group and the optional theme is Love or monochrome pink/red.

There are 3 other story time digis as well and they are on special for February
All the fairy digis are on special also.

I already had the set of 3 of this digi (png white filled, png clear & jpg,)
I have layered the clear png digi onto paper from Scrappers Delight Love and friendship paper set
Added sentiments from Gingers House blog and Create with TLC
Added precoloured fairies from Scappers Delight Fairy Topia set.  This set is good value as it has lots of images and papers in it and it is on special at the moment.
Added butterfly from the same set and changed the colour to red.
Added hearts from Scrappers Delight Cherished moments set.  This set is on special for $1 at the moment.  Has lovely papers and lots of elements.

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