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.

Crafting with Dragonflies 56 - vintage/shabby chic

Card challenge 56 at Crafting with Dragonflies is vintage/shabby chic

I have embossed green card with butterflies embossing folder and
then layered paper from Lozzy's new set Dark grunge which will be in her shop soon  I received these early as I am on her More Mixed Media and A Bit More Time to Craft design teams.  Lozzy has lots of lovely digi papers in her shop.
Then layered precoloured image from Gecko Galz April 2016 collage sheet (which I received with the newsletter) on top.  Added punched butterfly with rhinestones.
Stamped happy birthday, punched out with oval punch, layered onto red card punched with scalloped oval punch and layered on top.
Added ribbon.  Printed more poppies from Julia Spiri Watercolour poppies flowers clip art set

If you sign up for the newsletter at
