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.

Cute as a Button inspiration post

It is my turn to do an inspiration post for Cute as a Button

I coloured a white card with chalks.  Drew a tree trunk and branches.  Stamped leaves, grass, flowers and butterflies with stamps from Posh Impressions Stamp a Scene set.
Printed Cute as a Button digi stamp Daisy Mae onto white card, coloured with :Prismacolor pencils and gel pen, cut out and layered on top.
