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.

Funky Girls Roller skating and Good girl

Each week Tamara gives a free stamp to use on The Stamping Chef facebook challenge.  The stamp is available for 24 hours starting Monday.  If you request the freebie you must made a card with it for the challenge.  After the 24 hours they are for sale at her shop.
The challenge at Through the Purple Haze this week is funky girls and boys
I made two cards this morning
Card 1:  The Stamping Chef and Simply Betty joined together for last weeks freebies.  I was too late last week to get the images for free so bought them.  
I have printed parts of 3 papers from Lilly Bimble digital Roller Skate papers and layered The Stamping Chef "Kitty Paw Vultura" and Simply Betty stamps "Bonnie Skullbabe" on top of papers and coloured with markers.  Added sentiments from Create with TLC "Keep Calm and Skate" digi stamp set.
Layered all onto pink card.

Card 2.  Is made with this week's freebie from the Stamping Chef "Good Girl".  I have printed "broad lines" paper from Trimgym and done the sentiment with word art.  Printed "Good Girl", layered on top of paper, and coloured her with markers.  Have layered all onto white card.

My eyes aren't too good today so the colouring is not the best.

I love these images, I'm a big fan of TSC and also joined in with these challenges as I could resist the fabulous digis. I love the roller skate background paper on your card. And lovely choice of colours on the second card.

Thanks for entering your cards in our challenge this week.
