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.

Feeling Sketchy No 57

Feeling Sketchy Challenge No 57 will be up on the Feeling Sketchy blog after 9 am tomorrow morning Sydney time (it is now 11.35 pm on Sunday night)
This is the sketch with the optional extra add stitching (real or fake)
This is the card I made
I put two strips of pattern paper from My Mind's Eye "Stella and Rose" 6x6 pad onto light pink card.  I don't sew so have stamped Sassafras Lass clear stamp "stitched borders" to left hand side and added button.  Printed Free Vintage Digital stamps "Sewing Silhouette" and "Vintage Sewing Machine" onto white card and punched out with Stampin Up punch.  Layered onto dark pin carc punched out with Stampin Up circle punch.
Layered all onto dark pink card.

Come on over tomorrow and join in the challenge.
