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.

4 Crafty Chicks challenge 235 sketch

Challenge 235 at 4 Crafty Chicks is a sketch

I have used papers from Bugaboo "Papers Sweet" and "Bright Cupcakes" (changed two of the colours).  Printed Bugaboo digi stamp "Gus Bday" onto papers and coloured with markers.  Added sentiment from Bugaboo and typed 68.  Layered all onto blue and then white card.

I made this card for my husband.  His birthday is on Friday.  He is tall and thin while I am short and fat.   When he turned 60 he jokingly told our grand daughters that he wasn't going to get any older, he was going to start counting backwards.

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

Addicted to stamps challenge 99 - use a number

Sparkles monthly challenges blog No 65 - one for the boys
