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.

This the card I made with one of the new stamps.

I embossed dark pink card with Cuttlebug Kimmi Luvs embossing folder.
Printed out Cute as a Button new digi stamp I'm Sweet on you, cut out, coloured with markers and glitter pen and layered onto the dark pink card.
Added heart washi tape.
Stamped Stampin Up Sending you my Love, punched out with circle punch and layered on top.  Layered all onto light pink card.
