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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy monthly Christmas challenge No 1

A new monthly Christmas challenge has started at Digi Stamps 4 Joy

and Digi Stamps 4 Joy has generously given us a free image to join the challenge.
Each month if you make a card with the free image you will received the next month's image free.

I have printed the free image onto white card and coloured with chalks, markers and glitter pen.  Cute circle in green card and embossed with cuttlebug embossing folder and layered over white card.  Coloured the berries with red marker  Added washi tape and layered all onto red card.

I would also like to enter this card into
Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas card challenge 158 - upcycle, repurpose or use a freebie 

and Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Chrisdtmas card challenge - anything goes

I would also like to add this card to Decosses dynamite doodles 12 days of Christmas card link up (suggested to me by Desire)
