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.

Art by Miran facebook group progressive challenge

Each month Art by Miran kindly gives us a free digi stamp to use in the facebook group challenge.  If you make a project with the stamp you can request the next month's for free.

I have layered the free digi from Art by Miran digi girl 308 Classy Cheryl onto paper from Lozzy's mixed media paper set.  Added sentiment from Gingers House Blog.  Flowers and butterfly from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.  Coloured digi stamp with Prismacolor pencils and gel pen.
Added pink rhinestone flowers.  Added pink rhinestones to hat and butterfly.
The rhinestones ae all pink though the scanner has made them look blue.

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

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Inspiration Destination 99 - anything goes

In the Pink 101 - make it sparkle

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends 39 - anything goes

Pennys Paper-Crafty challenge 291 - anything goes
