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.

Christmas Card Club - anything goes

It was Sylvia's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas Card club this fortnight and she picked anything goes
I have used papers from Imagine That Christmas snowflakes paper set and Merry and Bright paper set (changed colours to purple)
Precoloured digi stamp and sentiment from Angel Harpist set and precoloured ornaments from Elegant Ornaments set.

If you would like to see the cards by the rest of the Christmas club their blogs are listed on the left side of my blog.

I followed sketch 121 at The Sketchy Challenges blog so I would like to add my card to that challenge

I would also like to add my card to the following:

A nice colour combo for a change from red and green which we all tend to lean towards. Lovely image too.
