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.

Alicia Bel April facebook challenge

There is a new challenge on the Alicia Bel facebook group
The theme is animals, real or fantastic or beings that are animals in part, such as mermaids, centaurs, etc.
Also worth any digi where an animal, insect, fish, etc. appears. Even if it's like a pet. Or any digi where the character wear an animal costume. 

We had to make teams of four for the challenge.  I am in the team with Lisa Jannaway, Susan Bennett and Bonnie Kohane.

This is my first card

I have used papers from We are 3 Warm Sand and Fantasy paper collections
Alicia Bel digital stamp Spring mermaid which I coloured with markers and glitter gel pens.
Fish, seaweed and bubbles from Sweet Shoppe Designs Mermaid cove
Sentiment from Imagine That Mermaid Swimming.

I followed sketch 447 at Tuesday Morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge
