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.

Christmas card club - Christmas baking

It was Maureen's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has picked Christmas baking.

I have used precoloured elements and three papers from My Memories Christmas Cooking set

I would like to add my card to the following:

City Crafter 395 - at the tea room
