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 flowers

It was Rachel's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas card club and she has picked Christmas flowers.
I have used two papers from We are 3 Christmas Magic paper collection
Heart punch trim from Scrap Graphics (I changed the colour to white)
Flower and sentiment from Digital Scrapbooking A Christmas Wish collection

If you would like to see the cards made by the rest of the Christmas card club, their cards will be posted later today and their names are listed down the left side of my blog.

I used the sketch 255 at Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge so I would like to add my card to that challenge:

Pretty blues in the background. Makes your poinsettia pop against those shades.
