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.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 119

Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 119
and our sponsor this fortnight is Digi Stamp Boutique

I layered Digi Stamp Boutique digi stamp from Cute Ted-All Occasions onto flower and then onto brad from Digital Scrapbooking Studio, then onto triangle and then onto paw print paper from Pininkie.  Added extra flower from Digital Scrapbooking Studio and sentiment from the Cute Ted set.  Coloured the digi stamp with Copic markers.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

This is the sketch

I would like to add my card to the following:

2 Crafty Critter crazies 5 - anything with a critter

Crafty Animals 5 - anything goes with an animal

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

Daisy Chain 11 - anything goes
