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.

Outlawz progressive freebie challenge - March
Each month we receive a free image from a different sponsor and if we make a card and join the challenge we receive the next month's free image.
If you haven't already joined in and you would like to, go over to Outlawz freebie progressive challenge, register to join, then email for this month's free image.
This month our sponsor is Gerder Steiner designs

This is the card I made with the stamp from Gerder
I sprayed white card with different colour Dylusion sprays, then embossed it with balloons embossing folder.

Stamped Happy birthday onto card which had the overflow of the dylusion sprays, punched out with scallop oval punch and added distress ink to edges, and layered onto card.

Printed Gerder Steiner digital stamp 342 elephant and bird onto white card and coloured with markers and distress inks and layered on top.

Die cut number 2 and added on top.  Layered all onto blue card.

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

Craft your Passion 254 - anything goes

Get Creative 11 -  Must use a die cut (the number 2, I have very few die cuts).

Just Inspirational challenge - cute

Through the Purple Haze 83 - anything goes

Such a cute image from Gerda! Your card is adorable! I wish I was still playing in the Outlawz progressive challenge but I ended up dropping out in December - too busy with Christmas and poor planning on my part!
