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.

I made this card tonight Using the lovely KS digi "Sunday Afternoon" that I bought last week.

I embossed purple card with Cuttlebug daisies.  Stamped thinking of you onto yellow card and punched out with scalloped oval and layered onto purple card.  Added dragonfly brad.  Printed out Sunday Afternoon, cut out and coloured with markers and layered onto purple card.  Printed out hat again, cut out, coloured with markers and layered on top.  Printed another daisy, cut out coloured with markers and layered on top of that again.  Printed out another 5 daisies, cut out and coloured with markers and layered onto purple card.  Layered all onto yellow card.
