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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Elisabeth Bell Facebook challenge

Elisabeth Bell facebook challenge

If you sign up for the Elisabeth Bell newsletter you receive a free image with each newsletter

The latest free image is Christmas in a cup
and the extra themes you could add were
1. Gingerbread
2. Star
3. Elf
4. Stocking
5. Fireplace
6. Snow
7. Reindeer

I have added gingerbread paper, stars, stocking and reindeer to my card

I have used gingerbread paper from Imagine That Gingerbread paper collection
Precoloured stars, stocking and reindeer from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
I have coloured Elisabeth Bell's digi stamp Christmas in a cup with Prismacolor pencils.
Stamped Happy Christmas.

I followed sketch 540 at Sketch Saturday so I would like to add my card to that challenge (I used rectangle instead of oval)

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