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.

Sketch Saturday 276

This is the sketch for challenge 276 at Sketch Saturday

This is the card I made tonight
I embossed white card with Sizzix Christmas Thin Ice embossing folder and sponged over it with "Festive Berries" distress ink.  I printed a sentiment over a piece of digi paper from Imagine That Merry and Bright "Ornaments small red" and layered it on top.  Printed pre coloured digi image "mod56col" from Whoopsie Daisy CD onto black and red circle and layered onto paper and card.  Punched Stampin Up star on white card and coloured with "Festive Berries" distress ink and attached.  Layered all onto black and then red card.
Just finished it in time to put into the challenge.
I have to go to bed soon as it is 12.35 am on Saturday morning here in Sydney.
