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:";">

Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) September challenge - anything goes

Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) September challenge - anything goes

I have made a bookmark this month - I have 100s of rubber and clear stamps that I don't use much now as digital stamps are much easier on my sore hands but I decided I would try using stamps for this and found an old clear set by Lavinia Stamps in one of my drawers of clear stamps.  There is no name of the set it is just marked Lavinia Stamps

I cut gloss card into shape of bookmark and sponged it with Brilliance ink pads.  Stamped the stamps from the Lavinia Stamps set with different stamp pads.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following:

I really like the background you have created for this image.
I too have so many stamps I seldom use - for me, the colored digis are much better due to poor eyesight. this one worked well for you! Thanks for joining us at the current Crafter's Cafe challenge

What a lovely and fun bookmark. Freya looks so beautiful spreading a little of her fairy dust around. You've used one of my very favourite sentiments. Isn't it a wonderful wish? Love it!
Thank you so much for playing along with us at Lavinia World Challenges. We hope to see you again next time. Have a wonderful day.
