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.

I have made a very simple card.  Printed image onto white card, added frame and birds from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  Coloured image with chalks, and markers.

  3. I'd not really thought about the shape of the cake in the photo, but you've nailed it perfectly!

  4. What a great, summer card! Your coloring looks great and I like the added frame. Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational!
