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 September challenge - anything goes

September challenge at Cute as a Button is anything goes

My eyes are worse so I printed out the Cute as a Button digi stamp Autumn Wind out large, coloured it with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens and then scanned the coloured picture and reduced it to put on my card.
Layered onto Create with TLC paper Fashionable Fall.   Added sentiment from Create With TLC Dear Autumn set.
Added frame, extra leaves and flowers from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Graceful Splendor set

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

Sweet card Margaret, and I admire your tenacity in keeping card making and colouring. Are you troubled with cataracts?

Granmargaret said...

Thank you Maxine. I have Glaucoma and Macular degeneration plus the start of cataracts. Four lots of drops to put in several times each day.
