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.

Christmas card club - village scene

It was Rita's choice this fortnight and she has chosen the theme - village scene.
I am a bit late adding my card as I was away at my daughters.

I have used precoloured images, papers and sentiment from Joanna Sheen Christmas in Holly Pond Hill by Susan Wheeler CD.

If you would like to see the lovely cards by the rest of the Christmas card club their blogs are listed on the left side bar.

I would like to add this card to the following:

Crafters Cafe 15 - your inner child

No more worrying that I haven't a stamp for the theme! Thank you Karen x

  9. So sorry I'm late in commenting. My Internet problems are consuming my life at the moment. To cap it all my iPad crashed this morning and took my IT specialist a talk through on the phone to get it working again. It's enough to drive you to drink. In fact sitting in the garden right now with a Pinot Grigio Blush. Very nice it is too. Anyway I digress. These are lovely scenes of a by gone era depicting perfect village life. Love all the detail in them. Perfect for the challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
