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.

Whoopsi Daisy challenge - Christmas in July

The challenge at Whoopsi Daisy this week is Christmas in July

I have printed one of the pre coloured images from Whoopsi Daisy sheet No 544 onto white card.  Stamped Happy Christmas.  Punched holes down each side with Sew Ribbon tool and threaded ribbon through.  This is only the second time I have used this tool and still find it hard to use with my sore hands.  Hopefully I will get better at it.  Added pink ribbon across top and Reindeer ribbon across the bottom.  Layered all onto pink card.

I hope you will go over to Whoopsi Daisy and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Whoopsi Daisy stamp but if you do and you are the winner you will receive 2 sheets of Whoopsi Daisy Images.  If you don't use a Whoopsi Daisy stamp and you are the winner you will receive one sheet of Whoopsi Daisy images.

You can buy the lovely Whoopsi Daisy images at
Linnie is adding new images all the time and there is a free image there.

I followed the sketch at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown so I would like to enter this card into the July sketch challenge

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