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.

Beccy's Place day 11, Rick St Dennis progressive challenge, plus others

Day 11 at Beccy's place month of holiday cards is border punches

The November progressive challenge at Sparkle and Glitter with Rick is anything goes using any stamp from Rick St Dennis Etsy shop or his Zibbet store

I have the same border punch that Beccy used on her card.  I have used the border punch on light blue card and attached it to dark blue card.
Printed Rick St Dennis digi stamp Best Frenemies onto white card, coloured with markers, layered onto dark blue card and then onto the light blue card.  Have added the punched out snowflakes.
Stamped Happy Christmas onto white card, layered onto dark blue card and then onto blue card.  Added snowflakes.

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