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.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Imagine That Progressive challenge

Each month Kris at Imagine That gives us a free stamp set to use in her challenge.

If you haven't already joined in you can buy the lovely cute set at Imagine That, join the challenge and you will receive next month's free.  All stamps are on special at the moment

I have layered precoloured image from the set onto glitter green paper from Birthday Bubbles paper.  Added sentiment and holly.  Layered all onto red card.

As well as the progressive challenge there is also another challenge at Imagine that.  Anything goes using an Imagine That stamp.

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

Buckwells Crafty challenge - use the colour red
