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.

The Sisterhood of Crafters - think pink - card 2 plus others

This is my second card for the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters - think pink breast cancer awareness

Paper from Imagine That BCA paper set, precoloured image from BCA Super Hero set.  Circle of hope from Daydream Designs Hope Endures combo set.  Ribbon punch

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

Anything Goes with a Twist challenge 2 the twist is female

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

I received my letter this afternoon with the report from my latest breast scan this month and thankfully it was clear.

Because of my family history I now have to have scans every year instead of every 2 years.
My mother's sister died from breast cancer when she was 51 many years ago and my daughter discovered a lump which turned out to be breast cancer when she was 38 (before the age when you can have free scans).  She had two operations as they didn't get it all the first time, then 20 weeks of chemotherapy and then six weeks of every day radiotherapy in 2011.  She is still on medication to try to stop the cancer coming back.

I had a lump removed many years ago but thankfully it was not cancer.
