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.

Lacy Sunshine 49 Sparkly and new

Lacy Sunshine challenge 49 - Sparkly and new

I have used new papers from Lacy Sunshine "Mandy and Sheena Wild Boutique" paper set which I bought yesterday.  Plus new Lacy Sunshine digi stamp "Snow and Cat Enchantress" which I coloured with markers.
Snowflakes from Polkadoodles "Angelberry Christmas" CD
Added rhinestons and liquid pearls.

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

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything goes covered with pattern paper

Fab n Funky 242 - something new (new paper and stamp)

Fun day Friday - use some bling (rhinestones and liquid pearls)

Glitter n Sparkle 119 - use some pink

Inspiration Destination 16 - anything goes

Love to Create challenge 149 - add snowflakes

Party Time Tuesdays 194 - anything goes

The Corrosive Challenge 215 - Shiny and New

Through the Purple Haze 73 - anything new to you (new paper and stamp)

It has been very hot here in Sydney and we still have lots of hot weather to come.  Officially our summer is 1 December till end February but last year we had some hot weather in November.  We often have some very hot days in March.

The insects are what I don't like flies, etc.   This year we have a problem with little ants coming into the house, and they are not coming for food as they are in both bathrooms and my craft room.  I don't allow any food or drink in my craft room.  I made this card yesterday and instead of leaving it on my desk for the liquid pearls to dry I put it on the chair in the middle of my room.  This morning it was covered with ants, how they got there I don't know.  Luckily they didn't leave any marks on my card.

Have a good day everyone.

Love all the sparkle and shine! I hope you figure out the ant situation soon... Otherwise maybe leave your ink pads open and in the morning you'll have lots of ant-made cards! :)

Gorgeous card, Granmargaret - I love the pretty image and your new papers are stunning. We have a problem with ants too - I washed cherries from our trees and left them on the work surface - when I came back the whole surface was swarming with ants - ugh!!
Thank you for joining in our Something New Challenge at Fab'n Funky.
