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.

One Sweet Challenge October Autumn colours and Lemon Shortbread anything goes

Challenge at One Sweet Challenge is Autumn colours

Also Lemon Shortbread's first challenge has started - anything goes

I have printed Sweet Pea stamp "On a Mushroom" by Lemon Shortbread onto white card and coloured with chalks and markers.  Printed out a second stamp, cut out the girl, coloured her with markers and layered on top.  Added ribbon, mushroom and dragonfly brads.  Layered all onto orange card.

Unfortunately Sweet Pea stamps is closing on 25 November due to health reasons, but thankfully you can buy the Lemon Shortbread digi here

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