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.

My card for Scrapbook Boutique July challenge

This is my card for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge for July.

This was the inspiration "one for the boys" 
I had to make a male card today to post out tomorrow.  I find it dificult making male cards.

I used the cuttlebug "divine swirls" folder. Tria markers and pencils for the sea and sky and ink for the clouds.  Two old stamps lighthouse is a PSX, the verse is by Art Impressions.  Newer Stampin Up   Thinking of You.

I have run out of time to add it to the Scrapbook blog tonight so will have to finish tomorrow.

Margaret, that swirl background works so well with the theme. I have found it to be a very versatile embossing folder and this is just another example of how it can be used. Thank you for sharing. Hugs Von xx
