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.

Nicki Burnette facebook challenge - anything goes

The challenge at Nicky Burnette's Spellbinding stamps Facebook group for August is anything goes
and Nicky has kindly given a free stamp to use but I have used a different stamp of hers as I wanted to make a pink fairy card.
I have layered a piece of pattern paper down the side of a light pink card and embossed both with Crafts Too "Butterflies" embossing folder.  Added lace ribbon.
Printed Nicky Burnette's digi stamp "Cadence" onto white card and coloured with pink markers.  Wings coloured with yellow glitter pen.  Cut out and layered onto pink card.   Layered all onto dark pink card.
