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.

Inside front cover of journal

I have finally finished the journal I have been making for my third grand daughter.  I finished the inside front cover today.

Painted moulding paste through stencil
Sponged distress ink through star stencil.
Added picture.
Added paper lace.
