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 299 and The East Wind No 2

Time for another sketch at Sketch Saturday

and it is time for challenge 2 at The East Wind - Use a digi.
and we have been given a free The East Wind image to join in this challenge.  If you would like the freebie go to the blog and subscribe to the newsletter and you will receive a free image each month.

This is the second card I made today.  I have embossed green card with Cuttlebug daisies and layered onto purple card.  Printed out the lovely free image from The East Wind onto white card, coloured her with markers and then layered onto green card.  Stamped Best Wishes in corner.   Layered a piece of purple paper from Sweet Fairy 6x6 paper pad.  Added punched purple scalloped circle, punched green and purple flowers and green rhinestone.

You can buy the lovely The East Wind images at

and there is a facebook group
which also has a challenge going.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges
Open Minded challenge 5 - Use some green

and Inkspirational Challenge - Purple Green and white

and Just Inspirational March challenge - anything goes
