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.

Art by Miran challenge 6 and 52 Christmas Countdown

Challenge 6 at Art by Miran is anything goes

The challenge at 52 (Christmas) card throwdown is a recipe challenge Colour something, add ribbon and/or rhinestones and deboss (use the recessed side of card you have embossed with a folder rather than the raised side)

I have printed Art by Miran digi stamp Christmas color page 1 twice onto white card and coloured with markers.  Cut out the first image and layered onto the deboss side of green card which I embossed with Crafts Concepts Funky Poinsettia embossing folder.  Cut out the poinsettia flowers and the Christmas hat from the second image and layered over the first image.   Stamped Penny Black Christmas Blessings and layered onto green card.  Added ribbon and rhinestone stars.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge
Christmas Fun challenge - all that glitters/anything goes
(the rhinestones are what glitters on my card.)

I was really productive yesterday and made 8 cards.
Today I have only managed to make one card.

Such a wonderful creation with great attention to detail. Love the colours and embellishments. All the elements work so well together. It is perfect for our sixth ‘ANYTHING GOES’ challenge. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. Good luck.
