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.

12 months of Christmas cards link up 23 - optional theme bingo - mid way post

Everyone who links up 2 or more Christmas cards will receive the free paper offered for this month at 12 months of Christmas cards link up
If you use the optional theme - bingo you will go in the draw to win one of the other prizes (see the challenge blog for details)

I have used the top line green, icicles, pattern paper, twine, sentiment

I have used the green paper from this month's set Yuletide textures

Green pattern paper from Lisa's Familiar Refrain paper set available here

Lisa's sentiment Christmas sharing available at Imagine That 

Precoloured Imagine That digi stamp Shopping Sandy
I didn't have any icicles so have added snowflakes from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Added red and green twine.

I hope you will go over to the 12 months of Christmas cards link up and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

There is also a design team call.  If you would like to join a group of lovely ladies see the details on the blog
