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.

Scrapping4Fun challenge 67 - Travel/Holiday

I was delighted to be invited to be guest designer for Scrapping4Fun challenge 67 - travel/holiday

The wonderful sponsor for the challenge is Julia Spiri

I have made two cards:

Card one: holiday card - I have printed Julia Spiri digi stamp Sunny Day onto white card and coloured with chalks, Twinkling H2Os, Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.  Sentiment from Gingers House blog.  Added fish and bucket brads.

Card two: travel - I have used paper and elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Around the world in 80 days set.

I hope you will go over to the challenge blog and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Julia Spiri also has a challenge blog
