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.

Creative Fingers challenge 34

Challenge 34 at Creative Fingers this week is Embossing hot and/or dry

Our sponsor this week is Dilly Beans Stamps who has given the design team some lovely digi stamps to use which those on the A team have used.
I am on the B team and wanted to join in so I have used a Dilly Beans Stamp I bought before this.

I have embossed green card with Cuttlebug holly and berries.  Swiped over with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder (supposed to look like snow).  Added red ribbon.  Printed Dilly Beans stamp 452 Holly Girl Framed onto white and coloured with markers, layered onto red card and then onto the green card.  Added punched holly leaves and rhinestones.

I hope you will go over to Creative Fingers and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.

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