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.

Gresat use of the patterned papers behind the image. Such a shame that a lot of the smaller digi shops have been forced to close down due to the new VAT rules. Image is a cute one. Thankyou for fluttering by again. hugs Mrs A.
