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 new Christmas stamps.

There are new Christmas digi stamps at Mad for Markers and more to come
If you go to the Mad for Markers blog you can see some lovely work by the new design team.
If you follow the blog by email you will get a message each time there is a new post.  (See follow by email box right side bar)
You can also subscribe to the newsletter (Subscribe to our mailing list box right side bar)
The design team started last week but I was away for a couple of days so didn't get a card made until this week.
I have layered Mad for Markers digi stamp Stella with earrings onto paper from Lozzy's dinky stars paper set.  Added sentiment from Create with TLC and extra stars.  I have just restarted using Copic markers so am still a beginner.

Coloured Stella with the following Copic markers:
Skin:  E000 E00 RV91
Stars on face:  Y08
Lips: R35
Dress: R35 & G14
Eyes: B00
Baubles:  R35 and G14

Hair: E01, Y02 plus red and green glitter pens

I hope you will go over to the blog and see the lovely work by the design team.

Also there is still time to request the free stamp on the facebook group. 

If you join the group you can ask me to send you the free stamp and then if you make a project and put it into the November album before the end of the month I will then send you December's free stamp at the beginning of December.
