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.

Spellbinding Stamps by Nikki Burnette January facebook challenge

Nikki Burnette kindly gave us a free image to use in the Spellbinding facebook group challenge for January.  I didn't have to download it this month as I already had it.
The challenge is to use something new with any Nikki Burnette stamp.  I have used pattern paper from one of my new books of papers given to me by my youngest daughter for Christmas.

I have embossed light pink card with Crafts Too "Butterflies" embossing folder.  Added pattern paper from Rosie's Studio A5 designer papers "Garden".  Printed Nikki Burnette stamp "Analiese" onto white card, coloured with markers, layered onto dark pink card and then onto light pink card.  Stamped Happy Birthday and punched with oval punch, layered onto dark pink card punched with scalloped oval punch and layered on top.  Added butterfly brads and flower brads.

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

As You like it challenge - favourite embossing folder and why.
It was hard to pick my favourite embossing folder as I have a lot of lovely ones.  I have used the butterly one many times.

Aud Sentiments 123 - anything goes

Butterfly challenge 22 - Butterflies plus B is for brads

Fun Day Friday 71 - anything goes

In the Pink 60 - anything goes

Penny's challenge 210 -anything goes
