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 month of holiday cards - day 5

Today is day 5 in Beccy's Place month of holiday cards and today Beccy has given us a free image to use.

I made this card earlier today but had to turn my computer off due  to bad storms so didn't get it posted till now.

I have embossed green card with sizzix thin ice embossing folder and layered it onto red card.  Added piece of patterned paper from Christmas basics 12x12 paper pad.  Printed out the precoloured free digi Stanley's bauble and layered on top.  Added Merry Christmas from the same paper pad on top.

Beccy has given us a lovely surprise today and given everyone who has entered so far a prize.

Come on over and join in.

I would also like to enter this card into
