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.

Creative Fingers Challenge

On 13 July I was excited to be invited to be on the design team for Creative Fingers challenges.

Today was my day to be introduced as a new design team member.

This is one of the cards I made with an image from our sponsor Dilly Bean Stamps

I embossed green card with holly and berries embossing folder.  Printed out Dilly Bean digital stamp 452 Holly Girl framed and coloured her with markers and layered onto green card.  Punched holly and layered on card, used rhinestones for the berries.  Stamped Stampin Up Happy Christmas and punched out with Stampin Up scallop oval and layered over the top.  Layered all onto red card.

Come on over and join in the current challenge which has 13 days to go.

I am going to add this card in the Crafty Hazel Nuts monthly Christmas challenge
