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.

Day 5 free image at Scrappers Delights

This is my card for day 5 free image from Scrappers Delights

I printed out day 5 free image "Kyoko" and coloured with markers and layered onto blue card.  I sprayed white card with pink and blue dylusion sprays.  Embossed with Sissix embossing folder.   Unfortunately I didn't notice I had left the stamped image too close and the spink spray went onto the image so I had to print out the digi again and colour it with markers, cut it out  and layer over the original image.  Layered the image onto the sprayed card and then onto blue card.

I am going to put this into the Stamp Happy album for December - make a Christmas card no red or green and do your own background.

I am also going to put this card into Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas challenge No 156

and Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge - anything goes.

Thanks to Hazel's challenges and other challenges I started early on my Christm cards this year so didn't have that dreadful rush at the last minute.  I made about 120 handmade Christmas cards.   I bought 40 photo cards from Harvey Norman with a photo of the family.

Next year I want to hand make all my Christmas cards so I am starting now.
