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.

Digitally Sweet challenge 132 - anything but a card or layout

Challenge 132 this week at Digitally Sweet is anything but a card or layout

and our wonderful sponsor this week is Bugaboo who has kindly given us some images to use

I have made a calendar page using the image given to me "JJ Calendar Months April" plus other images I have bought from Bugaboo.

Paper and sentiment also from Bugaboo.   Coloured images with markers.
(After scanning and adding here I noticed that I have made a mistake.  My birthday dinner at Lynda's is on Saturday not Sunday.)

I hope you will go over to Digitally Sweet and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.  Any craft project except a card or layout using digital stamps or paper.

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

Addicted to stamps and more 136 - anything goes

Catch the Bug theme challenge - Spring into Spring (It is Autumn here but Spring in USA and most of the images on my calendar page are Spring/Easter images)

Crafting by Designs monthly challenge -anything goes

Crafty Gals Corner challenge 11 - Hippity Hop - make a project that has an Easter theme (my page has mostly Easter images)

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

Creative Card Crew 83 - Easter critters (there is a bunny on my page)

Inspiration Destination 25 - anything goes

Scrapping 4 fun challenge 38 - Spring or Easter  (there are spring and Easter images on my calendar page)

Word Art Wednesday 175 - anything goes with an encouraging or uplifting verse

Your calendar page is awesome! I haven't seen anything like this before - so cute how you included all the Bugaboo images! You used some of my favourites! What a great idea! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
