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 - Christmas baking

It was Maureen's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has picked Christmas baking.

I have used precoloured elements and three papers from My Memories Christmas Cooking set

If you would like to see the cards made by the other members of the Christmas Club their names are listed down the left side of my blog.

I would like to add my card to the following:

City Crafter 395 - at the tea room

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Crimbo Crackers 150 - anything Christmas

Retarte 113 - anything goes

Sweet Stampin Christmas - anything Christmas

The Holly and Ivy Christmas challenge 22 - anything Christmas

Double D - Kitchen is the heart of the home
