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.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Dianne's Daydream Designs is sponsoring Anything Goes with a Twist

Dianne's Daydream Designs is sponsoring Anything Goes with a Twist and the twist this week is shimmer and sparkle.

I am on Dianne's design team and some of us have made a card to this theme  to show some of her new stamps which are available at

This is my card

I have layered images from Christmas Wonderland Trees - Christmas Tree with glitter deer and blue poinsettias onto paper from Stars that Shine digi paper set.  Added sentiment form Christmas Blessings Sentiment set.  Added glitter and rhinestones.  Layered onto blue, then white, then blue card.

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

Completely Christmas 33 - anything goes with a twist add a poinsettia

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes covered with patterned paper
