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.

Lacy Sunshine challenge 55 - Butterfly kisses and springtime wishes

Challenge 55 at Lacy Sunshine is Butterfly Kisses and Springtime wishes

Lacy Sunshine stamp Violet flower pot pretty coloured with markers.
Paper and butterflies from Scrappiness Designs.

I have such a headache and have had problems making this card today but the challenge finishes today so I had to get it done.  I am at my daughter's using her laptop.  My computer has to go in on Monday to be fixed.
The paper on the screen was a pretty green and the butterflies purple.  When I printed it out it came out very dark green.
As soon as I started to colour my eyes went blurry but I kept on and coloured it all.  Doing the eyes last I made a mistake so had to start over.
As I had to reprint it I decided to try and lighten the paper, when printed it came out different colours but still mostly green.   It now looks blue in the scan.  The yellow and green on the image are very pale  in the scan.

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