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.

The 12 months Christmas cards link up February challenge 26 Midway post - optional theme holiday Humour

This is the mid way post for challenge 26 at the 12 months of Christmas cards link up - optional theme is holiday humour.

Our extra sponsor this month is
who has given us some fun digi stamps to use.

I have used Snow Kisses (from the Christmas section) on my card plus free sentiment in the Christmas section

I have layered Scribbles Design digi stamp Snow kisses onto two papers from
Decosse's Dynamite Doodles A Cartoony Christmas pattern paper mini kit.  Added sentiment from Scribbles Design.  Coloured digi stamp with markers.

If you add 2 or more Christmas cards to the challenge you will receive one of the papers from this set.  One random winner will receive the full set.

If you follow the theme and put FT after your name you have the chance to win this month's sponsored prize of  $10 gift certificate from Scribbles Design.

I hope you will go over to the 12 months of Christmas cards and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
