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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy Monthly Christmas challenge - October plus others

Each month Digi Stamps 4 Joy kindly gives us a free image to use in the Christmas card challenge
This month the freebie is two sentiments.   If you haven't joined in yet you can email Desire for the free sentiments and make a card for the challenge and you will receive next month's image.

Sentiment layered onto red and then onto green squares and then onto paper from Diane's Daydream Designs Roody Doody paper set.   Added Digi Stamps 4 Joy precoloured images onto the 4 green squares.  Added ribbon and bow from Roody Doody Reindeer set.

I used the sketch from Completely Christmas challenge 34

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