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.

Ikes Art Facebook group progressive challenge

Sue at Ike's Art facebook group has kindly given us a free image to join the progressive challenge.   If you make a project for the challenge using this image you will receive next month's free.

I have used the free digi stamp which I coloured with chalks and markers.
Papers and elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Puppy Kisses.

I followed the sketch at Outlawz Sketch Wednesday so I would also like to add my card to that challenge.

I would also like to add my card to the following:

Always Fun 50 - dogs or cats

Always Happy Birthday - anything birthday optional use pattern paper

Crafty Animals 12 - anything goes

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends 78 - anything goes

Watercooler Wednesday 162 - masculine anything goes

Such a cute chubby dog image Margaret that would delight any guy on their birthday.and all. You've done a great job of showcasing "man's best friend" on your card front. Love the design and background papers you've chosen and the three paw prints. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge this week.
