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.

Christmas card club - star of wonder

Zoe picked the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight - Star of Wonder

I have used paper, sentiment and precoloured digi stamps from Daydream Designs.

If you would like to see the lovely work by the rest of the Christmas club their names are listed down the left side of my blog.  Their work will be on their blogs later today

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Open Minded Crafting Fun monthly challenge 6 - Seasons/holidays
