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.

Absolute LOVE that rain pattern paper you used for your background, Margaret!!!! It's perfect with the umbrella silhouettes! The addition of the vertical stripe of umbrellas was a smart choice. Your lovely card incorporated BOTH our sketch AND our "wet" theme. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
