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.

Mari Digis challenge 29 - anything goes with a Mari Digis stamp

Challenge 29 at Mari Digis is anything goes with a Mari Digis stamp

I love the Mari Digis and have bought a lot.  If you don't have any there are a lot of free digis on the the challenge blog under the freebies tab.

I used one of the free digis on my card

I have used papers from We are 3 Just a dress collection
Sentiment from We are 3 Happy Birthday collection
Free digi from Mari Digi which I have coloured with markers  and gel pen.

I followed sketch 485 at Sketch Saturday so I would also like to add my card to that challenge

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