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.

Cutie pie challenge 114 - Boys will be boys

Cutie pie challenge 114 - boys will be boys

I made this card for my 2nd grand daughter's boyfriend for his birthday this month.  He has two pet guinea pigs.

While they were visiting me a few weeks ago he drew this boy for me and I printed the boy and added the precoloured guinea pigs, leaves and cage from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.   I coloured the boy with markers and the background with chalks.

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

2 Crafty Critter Crazies 5 - anything goes with a critter

Crafty Animals 5 - anything goes with animals

Daisy Chain 11 - anything goes

Dragonfly Dreams - animals

Eclectic Ellapu - anything goes

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends 63 - anything goes

Pause Dream Enjoy 186 - birthday
