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.

Get well card for Paulette

A cyber friend Paulette had a fall and broke her ankle
A lot of you will know Paulette she gives us lots of lovely freebies each day.   Her daughter is kindly carrying on for her while she is ill.
Some of her current and former design team have done a blog hop for her which starts at

Have a look at all the lovely projects.   I was not included in the blog hop but I made a card and mailed it to her on 16 June.   Hopefully she will receive it soon.   Sometimes the mail to USA only takes a week, sometimes longer.  A friend from there sent me a birthday card in April and I didn't receive it till last week.
This is a scan of the card I sent to Paulette

I have spritzed white card with distress pens and spritzer and layered onto purple card.  Printed out image "Best Prayer Vintage" and sentiment "Best Prayers" which I think are past freebies  from TLC.

You can buy lots of lovely images and sentiments by Paulette at

I would like to add this card to challenge 137 at Word Art Wednesday.
Fan-tastic Tuesday 41 Anything goes

LOVE this card! Just thought I'd let you know that I spotted your comment over at Ileana's blog saying you couldn't read the wording due to it being a different language (Italian in fact). If you look at the top of her blog screen there's a box which will translate the text when you click on it. I have to say that the translation is never perfect but hope this helps!

Hope this

Thank you Di. Sometimes the translate box comes up and sometimes it doesn't.
