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.

Elisabeth Bell's freebie challenge

Elisabeth Bell gives a free digi stamp each newsletter to those who sign up to receive her newsletters.

She has started a challenge on her facebook page for the digi she gave on her newsletter on 3rd September.  Fall Willow with leaves.

I have printed Elisabeth Bell digi stamp Fall Willow with leaves onto white card.  Added extra leaves from E-scape and Scrap and butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
and sentiment from We are 3 Autumn sentiment set.
I then coloured with chalks and markers.

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

Aud Sentiments 212 - Fall + a sentiment

Cardz 4 Galz 80 - Thoughts of fall

City Crafter 429 - Fall colours

Cutie Pie 127 - shades of Autumn

Simply Create too 142 - use stitching (real or faux) entry 1 (stitching on digi)

Word Art Wednesday 352-353 - anything family friendly with an encouraging or uplifting sentiment

Words 2 Craft by 57 - When it gets crisp in the fall

Hi, Margaret! What a pretty card! I was wondering what medium you used for coloring and was intrigued to see that you used chalks and markers. What a nice, soft effect that's perfect for this card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Words 2 Craft By. :)
