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.

12 Months of Christmas cards challenge 17 optional theme non traditional colours.

Challenge 17 for May at 12 Months of Christmas cards link up is anything goes with the optional theme non tradition colours
It is my turn to post a card for the mid way post
Our sponsorship for this month is a combination of The Stamping Boutique and Glitterbabe (selling out of The Stamping Boutique store)

I have used a digi stamp from The Stamping Boutique - Nativity
I have layered the digi stamp onto one of the papers made by Lisa D for this challenge and coloured the digi stamp with chalks, Prismacolor pencils and gel pen.

Everyone who enters two cards into this month's challenge will win one of the papers from one of the sets on the challenge blog.
Also one random winner will win one of the full sets.
If you follow the theme you will go into the draw to win 2 digi stamps from the Stamping Boutique store.  If the winner uses a Stamping Boutique stamp or Glitterbabe stamp they will receive 3 digi stamps.

I hope you will go over to the blog 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
