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.

Chi Chi Memories challenge and others

Each month Chi Chi Memories gives us a free image to use in the challenge
and you are supposed to follow the sketch they give.  I have been so fuzzy headed I forgot the sketch when I made my card so I am going to have to make another one.   I will put this one in for now as I also want to join the challenge at
Inkspirational - purple and grey
Suzy Bee's Bloomin challenge 50 Anything goes with a twist stripes
Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes covered with patterned paper

I have layered Chi Chi Memories digital stamp Karate Girl onto paper from Pininkie cameo paper set.  Added grey stripes and sentiment from Create with TLC.  Have coloured Karate Girl with different shades of purple distress markers. Hair-Victorian Velvet, ribbons-Seedless preserves, clothes-Milled lavender and Seedless preserves.

I will have to make another card before the closing date for Chi Chi Memories.
