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.

Challenge 138 at Fun Day Friday is a sketch
and our wonderful sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps who has given us some lovely digi stamps to use
This is the sketch
