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.

Christmas card club 16 - Carol singers

It was my turn to pick the theme for Christmas card club 16 and I chose Carol singers.
I have used the precoloured image and scene from The Paper Shelter Christmas Carols set.  Two extra papers from The Paper Shelter Christmas Spirit paper pack.  Added bells, brad and holly from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Typed Happy Christmas.
