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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

More Mixed Media July challenge - anything goes with the option of pastel

More Mixed Media July challenge - anything goes with the option of pastel colours

I have used a light mauve card for the base of my journal page
Rubbed three different distress ink pads (one at a time) onto my craft mat and sprayed with water.  Smooched card into the wet ink.
Sponged butterfly stencil with distress ink.
Stamped Print Blocks sentiment Life life today and Stamp It Make the Most of every moment.
Stamped Stamp it Fairy Land
Stamped Crafty Secrets Vintage Silhouettes
Stamped Sugar Plums Leaves and garland
Added flowers and pearls and butterfly
The sentiment on the left is not very clear it says:
Live life today, for tomorrow is but a dream
and yesterday only a memory

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

A Inky Mess challenge 1 - anything goes

CCEE stampers 1626 - mixed media
