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.

Mad for Markers facebook group progressive freebie challenge

I am posting this a day early as I have 6 design team cards scheduled to post tomorrow.

On the Mad for Markers facebook group we were given a free digi to join the October challenge and if you made a card with the freebie and put it in the album you will receive the November free image.

This is my sample with the free image for November - Christmas girl face

I have used lots of layers to make my card.  Layered Christmas Girl face onto scalloped frame from Pininkie.  Coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and layered onto two papers from Christmas basics 12x12 pad.  Added Merry Christmas sentiment from paper from the same pack.  Added punched holly leaf and rhinestones.  Layered all onto red card and then onto green card.

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

Addicted to Stamps challenge 134 - lots of layers with a stamp

Christmas card challenges 46 - anything goes
Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas card challenge 305 - anything goes
