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.

Scrapbook Boutique October challenge

Scrapbook Boutique has a lovely mood board for the challenge this month.

I love butterflies so I have lots on my card.

I have layered Digistamps4Joy digi stamp JL811 Butterfly Bella onto paper from Lozzy's new Anika paper set which will be released about 4 November.
I coloured the digi stamp with Copic markers and glitter pens.  Added ribbon and flowers.
Typed sentiment in word art.

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

Crafting from the Heart 133 - anything goes

Crafty Girls Creations 28 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnuts monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Craft Your Passion 335 - anything goes
