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.

Christmas challenges

I have been joining Christmas card challenges trying to get my Christmas cards made early this year.    I made this one this week.

Have layered paper from Bearly Mine Designs Christmas Sparkles paper onto white card.  Reduced another paper from the same set, layered onto white, cut out and layered over the first paper.  Printed Bugaboo Stamps Santas Sleigh tag, cut out, coloured edges with marker, layered onto paper and added star brad.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
