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.

I embossed pink card with Crafts Too Butterflies embossing folder , cut an oval in it and layered over digital stamp.
Stamped Happy birthday onto pink card and cut out with oval punch.  Layered onto dark card punched with scalloped oval punch and layered onto pink card.
