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.

There are new stamps released today at Digi Stamps 4 Joy.   You can see the new stamps and the lovely cards made by the design team on the Digi Stamps 4 Joy blog

I am in team A so it wasn’t my turn to post today but I am so happy to be on the design team I wanted to do an extra card.
I have used one of the new stamps rj030 Beach umbrella on my card.  I have layered it onto background paper from Pink Gem and coloured it with markers, added sentiment from Create with TLC and then layered three precoloured  Digi stamps 4 Joy images.
