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.

Inspiration post for Cute as a Button

It is my turn to do post an inspiration card on the Cute as a Button Showcase blog

I have embossed red card with candy canes embossing folder.
Added strip of candy cane paper down the side from Christmas basics 12x12 paper pad.  Added washi tape.
Punched holly leaves and layered on top.
Stamped Happy Christmas and punched out with circle scalloped punch.  Cut bottom off punch and sponged edges with distress ink, and layered on top of holly leaves.  Added rhinestones for berries. 
Printed out Cute as a button Christmas Soldier 
Coloured him with markers cut out and layered on top.  Added rhinestones
Layered all onto green card.
