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.

The East Wind challenge 3 and Pinspirational Challenges No 99

Challenge 3 at the East Wind Challenge blog is Spring

Challenge 99 at Pinspirational challenges is a Yay!! Spring is on the way
and this is the inspirational picture

I have printed out The East Wind digi stamp "Aurora floral kiss" coloured her with markers and layered onto different papers from Pininkie design paper "Spots-stripes pink" and "large stars" added 3 pieces of Pinkinkie "ric rac" clip art

Added punched leaves, flowers and brads.  My scanner doesn't scan the colours properly.  Her dress and the large flowers are a pretty pink

I was picked as one of the design team favourites on The East Wind challenge number 2. and won this lovely image .
You can buy her and other lovely digital images at

I would also like to add this card into Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Patterned paper challenge.

Pininkie has a very generous sale on at the moment 70% off all paper sets.  Also depending on how much you spend you can get an extra percent off (see under the photos of each paper set).

I used some of the papers I bought on this card and the next card I am going to load soon.
