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.

Merry Monday No 59

I am just in time for the Merry Monday challenge No 59
Each week is a new sketch to make a Christmas card.
This is the sketch

This is the card I made tonight
I embossed green card with cuttlebug Christmas stars.  Stamped Stamp It "Christmas Love" onto white card, cut it out with oval fiskas cutter and coloured with markers and chalks.  Cut out a larger oval in red and layered both onto green card.  Added washi tape, and Stamped Stampalot Victorias Secret "Happy Christmas" onto green card and added rhinestone.  (It is an oval but looks like a circle on the scan)
