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.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Our sponsor this fortnight is Cute as a Button who has given us some cute stamps to use.

I have used Cute as a Button digi stamp Christmas Girafe and coloured with Copic markers.
Two papers from We are 3 Holly Berries plus brads.

I hope you will go over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

This is the sketch
