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.

Crafting with dragonflies 77 - More than 2 folds

Challenge 77 at Crafting with dragonflies is more than 2 folds

I have made a Cascade card following the tutorial at Beccy's Place (4 folds)
Printed paper from We are 3 watercolor paper collection and We are 3 Hearts in Love paper collection, cut to size and layered onto card.
Printed sentiment from We are 3 Courage Sentiments collection onto another piece of watercolor paper which I lightened so you could read the sentiment.
Added border, cut out and layered on top.

This is the first time I have made a cascade card and I think it will be the last time.  Beccy's tutorial was easy to follow, but I had problems getting everything to match up.

I would like to add this card to the following:

Crafty Creations 337 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Love to Scrap challenge 95 - anything goes

Miss Daisy facebook group challenge - sentiment only

Scrapping 4 Fun challenge 86 - anything goes with old stash (I didn't have the right size card so I went through an old folder from years ago and found a left over piece of scrapbooking card.)

Word Art Wednesday 274-275 - anything family friendly with an encouraging or uplifting sentiment

Words 2 craft by 39 - Proverbs and blessings
