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.

Gerda Steiner progressive freebie challenge

Each month Gerda kindly gives us a free stamp to join in her progressive challenge.  If you make a card with the free stamp you receive the next month's for free

I have layered Gerda Steiner stamp Picnic Penguin onto paper from Lozzys Love grunge mixed media paper set. Layered this onto 2 papers from Lozzys Apple and Grape paper set which were layered onto another paper from the Apple and Grape set.  Added fruit from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Stamped Have a nice day.
Coloured penguin with Prismacolor pencils.

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

Alphabet challenge - H is for hand coloured image

Crafty Catz weekly challenge 329 - Going Dotty (there are dots on the papers)
