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.

Guest design card for Art by MiRan

I was thrilled to be asked to be guest designer for MiRan challenge blog for March

I thank MiRan for the two lovely digital images she gave me to use.

This is my first card for 8 March
 I have layered the lovely digital image by MirRan "Lucky Lucy" onto Moo and Puppy "Lucky Shamrock Papers" and coloured her with markers.  Printed Happy St Patrick's Day with word art on my computer.  Have punched 3 leaf and 4 leaf clovers and attached them on top.

MiRan's lovely images are available to purchase on
Go over to the shop and see her lovely images.

Also go have a look at the blog
First challenge started on 7 March

There is also a facebook group for people who love her stamps

and her facebook page where she shows her new images and also cards made with her images.

My next Guest Design card will be on 22 March.

I would like to enter this card into Challenges 4 everybody - anything goes

and Open Minded Crafting Fun No 5 - use something green

and Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Patterned paper challenge

and One Sweet Challenge - scream for green
