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.

Feeling Sketchy No 164

Feeling Sketchy No 164
and our sponsor this fortnight is Patties Creations

I have used Patties Creations digi stamp Happy birthday bear which I coloured with markers and glitter pen.
Added punched heart balloons and drew strings for the balloons.
Added punched paw print border.
Sentiment was on the digi stamp so didn't add another one.  

This is the sketch
I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following:

Colour Crazy week 7 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Lil patch of Crafty Friends 52 - anything goes

If you give a crafter a cookie - inspiration cookie photo  (I have balloons on my card)
