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.

CD Sunday challenge - Get Well

Found this challenge yesterday on someone's blog CD challenge blogspot Get Well challenge where you have to use something from a CD.  I have been buying some crafting CDs this year so thought this would be a good challenge to join

I have used the doctor image, papers and embellishments from Polkadoodles Work and Play Collection 3 CD and the nurse from Polkadoodles Work and Play Collection 1 CD.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge anything goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge 44 anything goes
Open Minded Crafting Fun challenge 18 - Office supplies or job related
