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.

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 471 - upcycle or use something old

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 471 - anything Christmas with optional twist upcycle or use something old.
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/


I used an old piece of paper.  I can't remember where it came from.
Stamped an old rubber stamp and punched with round circle punch.  Layered onto red card punched with scalloped circle punch and layered onto paper.  (I haven't used these punches for a long time so it took me a while to find them).  Added ribbon which was around a Christmas box I received.
Layered all onto red card and then white card.

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:

What a sweet card, Miss Margaret. So nice to get a head start on your 2020 Christmas creations! I so admire your pretty artwork and how prolifically you craft, and how organized you are in all your endeavors. I wanna be like you when I grow up! Wishing you all the best in your upcoming surgeries. And now, Margaret, it is time for me to change hats. I enjoyed seeing your pretty card at Lavinia World Challenges >. Hope you join us frequently in the future.
Smiles,
