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.

12 months of Christmas cards link up Midway post - optional theme picture inspiration

12 months of Christmas cards link up midway post - optional theme picture inspiration

and our extra sponsor this month is Sparkle n Sprinkle who gave us some lovely digi stamps to use

I have used two papers from this month's paper set The Shape of Things.
Ribbon.  Precoloured digi stamp and sentiment from Sparkle n Sprinkle Seasons Greetings Digital stamp set 752.  Layered all onto pink card.

This is the inspiration photo

I have used the baubles as my inspiration.

I hope you will go over to 12 Months of Christmas cards link up and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, have a chance to win a special mini kit of digi papers and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize $15 gift certificate to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store.  Add FT after your name if you follow the theme and tell us how you were inspired by the picture.
