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.

Christmas card club

It was Zoe's turn to pick the challenge for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has picked
off the wall....non traditional....unusual colours

I have used non traditional colours for my card.

I have layered digi stamp Jingle from the We are 3 Jingle collection onto papers from  We are 3 Storybook Christmas collection and from We are 3 Holiday Wishes collection.  Added sentiment from Miss Daisy Scents of Christmas card kit.  Coloured digi stamp with markers and glitter pens.

If you would like to see the cards made by the rest of the Christmas club later today their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog.

I would like to add this card to the following:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge - anything Christmas

Glitter n Sparkle 229 - say it with music (music paper and jingle bells)
