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.

Ching-Chou Kuik blog challenge - butterflies/insects

Ching-Chou Kuik blog challenge - butterflies/insects

I have used 3 papers from We are 3 Summer Butterflies paper collection.
Ching-Chou Kuik digi stamp Merbutterfly Fairy Freedom from Fantasy Fairy set 1 greyscale which I have coloured with markers and glitter gel pens.
Added 3 extra butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Butterfly Garden by ADB Designs

I followed sketch 482 at Tuesday morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge
(I rotated the sketch to the left)

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

Butterfly spot challenge - fairy, pixie, elf or gnome

Lil Patch  of Crafty Friends 95 - anything goes

Love to Craft 29 - anything goes

Pammies Inky Pinkies 1848 - anything goes

Margaret, so sorry for the delay in posting a comment. Wishing you a belated Happy New Year and let’s hope 2019 is a very crafty one.

What a lovely card you have made here which fits perfectly the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month of “butterflies/insects”. Lovely that you have used a Ching-Chou Kuik image as well. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw and thank you for your continued support of our challenge blog.
