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 and Crafty Hazelnut's challenges

Christine has picked the theme for our Christmas card challenge this month - Winter Wonderland

I have layered Create with TLC Vintage Candle Christmas tree onto Create with TLC Starry night paper.  Added sentiment from Create with TLC and layered all onto black and then white card.
All these were in TLCs Christmas Club 2013.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges

Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Christmas card challenge 195 - make card in 20 minutes or less   This card was quick to make, I normally take lots longer to make my cards.

Crafty Hazelnut's Monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's Monthly Patterned Paper challenge - anything goes covered with patterned paper

  10. That starry night paper is beautiful - lovely response to Christine's winter wonderland CCC challenge - and thanks for sharing for all of my Craftyhazelnut's challenges. x

  11. Lovely winter scene, and I loved the soft pink of the background with the snow white trees and falling flakes. This certainly made the silhouette of the dark tree and the carolers much more emphatic in the pretty scene. TFS

  12. What a super colour combination and a lovely scene for Christine's challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
