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 lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

The East Wind Challenge 8 - Embossing wet or dry

Challenge No 8 at The East Wind is Embossing wet or dry and we have been given a free stamp to use in the challenge.  Everyone who signs up for The East Wind newsletter receives a free image for the first challenge each month.

I have embossed light pink card with Crafts Too "Butterflies" and then used my Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tool for the first time and threaded mauve ribbon through the card.
Printed The East Wind freebie "Aurora Gardening" onto white card and coloured with markers.
Punched purple card with scallop circle punch, embossed with Cuttlebug "Daisies" and layered over purple card.  Added flowers, brad and punched butterfly and layered over pink card.  Layered all onto purple card.

You can buy the lovely The East Wind stamps at

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting from the heart 21 - anything goes

Creative Moments 44 - anything goes

Fun Day Friday - anything goes

Margaret, the pretty colours of this card are ideal for this sweet image. They are so fresh and summery. Love the embossing and the ribbon threaded through is a fabulous detail. Thanks for joining our Embossing challenge at The East Wind. I hope you will play along with our next challenge, too. Always nice to visit and see what you are up to:)
