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 Facebook Group Progressive Freebie challenge February

Each month Sammi kindly gives a free stamp on the Mad for Markers Facebook group.  If you make a project with the stamp I send you the next month's free image.

For February she is giving two images and you can use one or both on your project.

I painted journal pages with blue and green brush markers and sprayed with water.   Stamped grass.  Added flower stencil with glitter pen and distress ink.
Printed sentiment, cut out, pasted onto purple card then pasted onto pages.
Printed the two Mad for Markers digi stamps summer boy and girl with freezie, coloured with Copic markers, cut out and pasted on pages.  Punched butterflies from foil wrap and pasted on top.  Stamped border along the bottom.

I hope you will go over and join the facebook group.

I am adding my journal pages to the following:

Altered Eclectics - altered art or mixed media

Art Journal Journey - Tell me a story

Crafts Galore Encore challenge - anything goes

PDE Linky party 157 - no cards allowed

The Mixed Media monthly challenge 32 - put a stencil on it
