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.

Christmas card club

It was Rita's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas Club this fortnight and she has picked the theme Mistletoe and wine.

Used 2 papers of Lisa Decosse's Christmas papers from 2014.
Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp JL700c Martinis cocktail
(You can only buy this now as a black and white image)
I googled mistletoe and wine and pictures of Cliff Richard's song Mistletoe and wine came up so I used two of those pictures.

If you would like to see the cards of the others in the Christmas Card club their names are down the left side of my blog.

Very pretty card.
I did not realize this was a song. You did a fabulous job of incorporating that fact.
The inset words look great.
