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.

Sympathy card

I received sad news this week that my friend Beth who was my bridesmaid in 1969 lost her battle with cancer.   She was a wonderful lady and good friend.  I worked with her before and after my marriage and went to her wedding.  Her husband was a minister (not long retired) so they moved around a bit and I haven't seen her for many years but we kept in touch every Christmas.  Her husband, children, grand children and friends are going to miss her greatly.

I made this card to send to the family.

I have used paper from We are 3 Nature Blends Paper collection
Sentiment from We are 3 Itty Bitty sentiment set
Beccy's Place precoloured digital stamp Wild Rose (when you buy this stamp you received the coloured one, a black and white digi and 5 sentiments.

I followed sketch 323 at Atlantic Hearts challenge so I would like to add my card to that challenge

I would like to add my card to the following:

Aud Sentiments 230 - anything goes with a sentiment

Beccy's Place July challenge - anything goes using a Beccy's place image.  (if you don't have one of her images Beccy gives a free image to join the challenge.  There are also some other free images - see the tab at the top of her blog)

Classic Design team open challenge July #7 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Pammies Inky Pinkies 1926 - anything goes

Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes

I'm so sorry for your loss GranMargaret, it's always difficult to lose people no matter the circumstances. I'm sure your beautiful card will bring some comfort to Beth's family.
Thinking of you,
Beccy xx
