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.

Cute as a button New Release

It is new release day at Cute as a Button and special discount .  Use code FLASH50 - June 10-14

I have made two cards with one of the new release digi stamps.

The first card is a clean and simple card just colouring the new digi stamp fire flies with markers and glitter pens.

As my eyes are too bad to colour small images, I then scanned the first card and reduced the coloured image to add to another card.
Used sentiment from Create with TLC.
Paper and elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

I hope you will go over to the challenge blog and see the lovely work by the design team with the new images and also join in the June challenge.

You are also invited to join the facebook group

Inspiration posts every so often on the Showcase blog:
