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.

Imagine that October progressive challenge

Each month Kris at Imagine That kindly gives us a free stamp or stamp set to join the progressive challenge.   If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's set, join the challenge and you will receive next month's free.
This is the lovely set for October 
This is the card I made today

I have layered the precoloured digi from the above set onto Paper from Diane's Daydream Designs Hope Endures Paper Pack purple.  (I have altered the colour to pink in Publisher, but there is also a pink set you can buy.)  Added Ribbon from Daydream Designs Hope endures combo set purple (altered colour to pink).  Added sentiment from the Imagine That set.  Layered all onto pink, green and then white card.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes with patterned paper

{PIN}spirational challenge 125 - anything could happen

Word Art Wednesday 152 - anything goes with an uplifting or encouraging verse
