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.

This month our generous sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps

who has given us a lovely digi stamp to use.
I have layered Bugaboo Stamp Friend Flower Doodles Coloring page onto three papers from Bugaboo digi papers Fun Snail.  Added sentiment from Bugaboo Clyde birthday.
Coloured the digi stamp with markers.

I have used my new butterfly watermark from Miss Daisy
