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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy - new stamp release

There are new stamps released at Digi Stamps 4 Joy every second Sunday.
See cards made by the design team with some of today's new digis on the blog

you can buy the stamps at the shop

This is the first card I made this week with two of the new stamps

I have layered the two new stamps from Digi Stamps 4 Joy MP389 Leggy Lilly's Easter Egg and rg052 Fantasy Tulips onto pattern paper.  Added sun and sentiment from MP366 Sunshine set.  Coloured all the digi stamps with markers.
Unfortunately I didn't write down the name of the pattern paper and as I made the card a few days ago I can't remember.

I hope you will go over to the Digi Stamps 4 Joy blog and see the lovely cards by the design team and also join in our April sketch challenge

  5. Lovely paper, Margaret (I'm always doing that - cutting the paper and not taking note of what it is and then forgetting). Thank you so much for joining my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon x
