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 don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

LeAnn's World 101 Facebook group challenge.

LeAnn kindly gave us a free digi stamp to use in the first challenge at LeAnn's World 101 Facebook group.

I have made a journal page and unfortunately my scanner won't work again today.  (It worked yesterday) so I have had to take a photo again which is not very good.

I painted journal page with  purple ink and drew squiggles through the paint.
Mixed moulding paste and white paint together and painted through a stencil.
When dry sponged with purple distress ink pad.
Printed sentiment, cut out and layered on top.
Printed the free stamp "Kitty" from LeAnn, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.
Added paper lace.

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