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.

Digistamps4Joy Facebook group freebie progressive challenge October

Each month Digistamps4Joy gives a free digi stamp to join in the facebook group progressive freebie challenge.  If you use the digi stamp to make a project for the challenge you can request the next month's free image,
The free image is in the files at the moment.  Will be deleted on 1 November.

This month the free stamp is MP401 Fuschia
I have inserted the stamp and then inserted it again and reversed it.
Layered onto mauve square and added a frame from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Layered onto paper from Lozzy's new paper set Regal which will be available after 4 November.
Lightened the paper a little so that you can read the sentiment from Gingers House blog.
Coloured the digi stamps with Copic Markers.
Added flowers and pearls.

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

Sunny Day Crafting 20 - anything goes

Simply Papercrafts 39 - anything goes

Let's colour Linky Party 13 - anything hand coloured

Cute Card Thursday 449 - lace and/or pearls (I used pearls)

Alphabet challenge - R for Recipe
Use at least 3 of the recipe ingredients - I have used 4 Sentiment, Pearls, flowers, digi stamp.
