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.

Fun Day Friday 134 - tan, black and red

I was very happy to be invited to join the design team at Jo's Fun day Friday challenge.  The challenges are weekly but we have been split into two teams so only have to make a card each fortnight.  I am in team A.  This is my first card on the design team. This week it is a colour challenge - tan, black and red.
One of our sponsors this fortnight is Little Blue Button Stamps
who has given us some lovely digi stamps to use.

I have layered Little Blue Button digi stamp "Solo Charlie" onto papers from Pininkie Musical Notes paper set.  Added piano keys, music notes and guitar from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.   Coloured digi stamp with red and tan  Prismacolor pencils and red glitter pen.  Eyes with blue gel pen.  Printed sentiment from Digital Scrapbooking Studio, punched out and layered onto tan card which I punched with postage stamp punch.
Added red ribbon, musical washi tape and music notes brad.

I hope you will go over to Fun Day Friday and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments 153 - anything goes with a sentiment

CCC Digi Creations 46 - anything goes

Crafty Friends challenge 29 - for a child

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper
