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.

Cute as a Button February challenge - Valentines

Cute as a Button February challenge - Valentines

I have embossed dark pink card with Cuttlebug Kimmi Luvs embossing folder.
Cut oval out of paper from Lozzy's All my love paper set and layered on top.
Printed Cute as a button digi stamp Heart Bow onto white card, cut out and coloured with markers and layered on top.
Added two ribbons and heart charm.
Layered all onto light pink card.

My scanner doesn't scan the colours properly, the colours of the paper and the dress are much brighter.

I hope you will go over to the Cute as a Button Blog and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
