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.

Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge

Each month a different artist gives a free digi stamp to use in the Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge.  If you make a project with the image you then receive the next month's free.

This month we have an image called Ava from Di's Digis

If you haven't already joined in this challenge you can send an email requesting the image, make a project and then you will receive the next month's image.

I have put elastic bands around the brayer and inked it and brayered over white card.  Added chalks.
Punched Best wishes onto white card and punched out with heart punch.  Layered onto purple card punched with larger heart.  Punched two small hearts and layered all the hearts onto the brayered card.
Printed Di's Digi Ava onto white card, cut out, coloured with markers and layered on top.
Added flowers and pearls.
