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 - A Christmas/snowy scene

It was Shaz's turn to pick the theme this fortnight for the Christmas Card club and she has picked A Christmas/snowy scene.

I have used paper and sentiment from Create with TLC 2013 Christmas bundle.
Santa & sleigh was a freebie on the Create with TLC blog some time ago.

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

I would like to add this card into the following:
