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.

Christmas tag card

Through the Purple Haze challenge is a card with tickets or tags.
I had some Christmas tags I hadn't used so have made this Christmas card
I embossed red card with Sissex "Thin Ice" embossing folder and sanded.  Added two Christmas ribbons.  Stamped Hero Arts "Happy Christmas" onto Kaiser Craft Journal tag and attached with red brad.  Attached all to green card.

I would also like to enter this into Crafty Hazelnuts monthly Christmas challenge extra
