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.

Show us your pussies challenge 8 - floral kitties

and Ike has given us a lovely free digi stamp to use - thank you Ike

I have coloured the digi stamp with chalks and prismacolor pencils and layered it onto paper from Lozzy's Flower Fun set.
Added flowers and brads.
I have used my new watermark that I purchased from Miss Daisy Stamps
There are 11 different ones to choose from.
