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.

Christmas card Club for 13 July - Use a Christmas Teddy

The theme suggested by Sue P, Christmas Card club for 13 July is Use a Christmas Teddy.
I have used two teddies on my card

I would like to enter this card into July No 4 prompt at 52 Christmas card throwdown "Stash inspired"

I have used patterned paper, sentiment and decoupage kit from Tatty Teddy Winter Wonderland pack.   I have had the pack for a long time but haven't used it before.   There are lots more images and papers to make more cards.  It took me a long time to do this card.  I hope to make some more.
I have added glitter pen to the paper but it doesn't show up in the scan.  Layered all onto pink card.
