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.

Outlawz Progressive challenge

Each month at Outlawz progressive challenge a different artist gives us a free digi stamp to use in the challenge.
If we make a project with the digi stamp and join the challenge we receive the next month's digi stamp for free.
This month's image has been kindly supplied by Ppinkydollsart

I have made a clean and simple card
I have printed Ppinkydollsart stamp Fifi  onto white card.  Added purple border.  Added sentiment from Ginger's House blog and changed colour to purple.
Coloured Fifi with different shades of purple Prismacolour pencils and glitter pen.  Coloured background with green and purple chalks.
(I don't know why my scanner doesn't scan the colours correctly.  The purple looks blue in the scan.)

If you haven't already joined in the progressive challenge you can join the challenge and email a request for the image (see details on the challenge).
