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.

Mad for Markers Angel card

I was happy when Sammi at Mad for Markers opened her new shop at Rockdale a few weeks ago.  She still has her on line shop for those who can't get to the shop.  She has a lot of lovely digi stamps on the on line shop

One of the digi stamps in the shop is Angel Girl Brianna which can be used for a Christmas card or a thinking of you card or a birthday card.

I embossed dark pink card with Cuttlebug Christmas stars and cut a circle out.  Printed Angel Girl Brianna onto white card and coloured her with Copic markers.  Layered the pink card on top.  Added flowers which I bought from the Mad for Markers shop.   Added bow and ribbon from my stash.

Have a look at the blog for some more ideas

And we invite you to join the facebook group where Sammi is giving away a free digi this month to join the progressive challenge.  If you join the group and request the free image and then make a card for the October challenge you can then request the free image for November

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