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 February's Use any IT stamp

Imagine that now has 2 challenges going each month.  The progressive stamp of the month and the Use any Imagine That Stamp.    I am just in time for the Use any Stamp challenge

I have used two papers from Imagine That Sweet Pastel papers
Precoloured images from Imagine That "Kathys Butterfly" "Birds in Spring" "daffodil" and "poppy".
Sentiment from Imagine That Sentimental "Thoughts".

I am using precoloured images again today as I am more fuzzy headed than normal from not enough sleep.   I didn't go to bed till very late.   My husband is on 24 hour call for the security system at the school where he works and there were 2 early calls this morning.   Then a spam phone call.  My husband answered the spam call half asleep and as soon as he heard the man say he was from Microsoft he hung up.  My husband was able to go back to sleep for a few more hours but I just got up.   I am so sick of the spam phone calls from people pretending to be from Microsoft or the bank.  You have to be so careful these days not to give any information over the phone.
Luckily I coloured my design team cards for tomorrow earlier in the week.

It actually takes me longer to make the digital cards than hand made ones by the time I find everything and put it all together.   The Imagine That digi stamps are great that they have png images that can be layered onto papers.  I just use Publisher to make my digital cards.

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

Crafting by Design - Thinking of you.

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

Fun day Friday 77 - anything goes

Cute card! I must have gotten at least 10 calls from "Microsoft." It's time they give up. Everyone's on to them.. My last caller was a woman who said her name was Henry. At least pick a woman's name! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Inspiration Destination this week.
