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.

Art by Miran Facebook group Progressive challenge for June

Each month Art by Miran kindly gives us a free digi to join the progressive challenge and if you make a card with the free image you can request the next month's free image.  If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's digi and join the challenge and then you can request next month's for free
I have layered Art by Miran digi stamp Sunshine Suzi onto paper from Imagine That Beach Blanket Girl set.  Sentiment, surfboard, umbrella, and ball from same set.
Coloured Suzi with Prismacolor pencils and a glitter pen for the ribbon on her dress
(I have given her long sleeves so she doesn't get sunburnt.)

I would also like to enter this card into the following:
