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.

A Day for Daisies challenge 78 - monochromatic

A Day for Daisies challenge 78 is monochromatic
I printed the free stamp given for the last challenge but didn't get the card made so I have used it now for this challenge.  Tammy very kindly gives a free image for each challenge.

Stamped Stampin Up "Wishing you Happiness" with pink ink on light pink card.
I have printed out the dig image and coloured with different shades of pink distress pens - Tattered rose, spun sugar, worn lipstick and picked rasberry and skin with copic R000.  Cut circle in dark pink card and embossed with cuttlebug roses.  Layered the dark pink card over the image.  Added pink flowers and brads and pink punched butterfly.  Layered all onto the light pink card.

I would also like to enter this card into 4 Krafty Girlz challenge
Any thing goes.
