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.

Faery Ink facebook group challenge - red, green and gold

Faery Ink facebook group challenge - red, green and gold.

I cut circle in green card and embossed card with Cuttlebug Christmas stars.
Printed Faery Ink digi stamp Christmas cutie and coloured her with pencils (the wings) and markers (the rest).
Layered green card over digi stamp.
Printed Faery Ink gifts which I think was a freebie last year.  Cut out one of them and coloured with markers and layered on top.  Added star washi tape.
Added gold star brad.
