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 Happy birthday

It is Ching-Chou Kuik's birthday this month so on the facebook group we are making Happy Birthday cards for her.

I have used another one of my new Ching-Chou Kuik digi stamps

I have used papers from We are 3 Magical Butterflies paper set
Sentiment from We are 3 All Occasion sentiment set
As my eyes are bad I printed out Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp Love is in the Air large, coloured it with chalks, markers and get pens then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.

I followed the January sketch at Cheerful Sketches so I would also like to add my card to that challenge

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