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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Happy New Year

Gerda Steiner kindly gave those who entered her last challenge a free new year digi stamp to use

I have layered pattern paper from Stella and Rose My Minds Eye Gertie papers 6x6 paper pad onto mauve card.  Layered piece of firework paper on top.
Printed out the new year bear onto white card, typed Happy New Year, coloured him with markers.  Sponged edges with distress ink and layered him on top.
