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.

Penny's Paper Crafty challenge 195 - embossing

Penny's Paper Crafty challenge 195 is embossing
and they have two great sponsors Karleigh Sue and Stamp Art Design

I embossed green card with Crafts Too Christmas Trees frame embossing folder and sanded it.  Added piece of patterned paper from Christmas basics 12x12 paper pad.  Printed Karleigh Sue digi stamp Jingles onto white card, coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top of patterned paper.  Cut Merry Christmas from the same paper pad and layered on top.  Added rhinestones for sparkle.

I would also like to add this card into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart - anything goes

Crafty Boots Challenges - anything goes
I just found this challenge today on someone's blog, they are celebrating their 3rd birthday.

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge - anything goes

Love to Create challenge - fussy cut

Merry Monday 127 Christmas bingo -
I have used Sparkle (rhinestones), Patterned paper and embossing.

The first challenge begins tomorrow night at the Karleigh Sue blog, I hope you will join in.

There is also a facebook group for Karleigh Sue fans
