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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy 100th challenge celebration, A Song in your {HE}art and other challenges

There is a special blog hop for the 100th challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy with lots of prizes
and challenge 100 this month is Celebrations
The Inspiration song for challenge 15 this fortnight  at A Song in your {HE}art is Rise Up by the Parachute Club 1983

I have layered Digi Stamps 4 Joy precoloured image JL478 Misteri Jumpin for Joy onto paper from Pininkie Ombre Sunburst paper set.  For the sentiment added some of the words from the song which were the inspiration for my card.  Layered all onto blue and then white card.

I hope that you will go over and join in the wonderful blog hop at Digi Stamps 4 Joy.
