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.

Christmas card club No 3 - stars

It was Sylvia's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has picked stars.

I sponged a white card with purple distress ink leaving a white square.  Drew stars through stencil with white gel pen.
Sponged piece of gloss card with blue and purple distress ink.
Stamped Stampr Rosa Inc - Indigo Ink 2000 with black brilliance ink. (I have had this stamp for a long time).  Layered on top of purple card.
Drew square and drew dots with purple marker.
Sponged piece of white card with blue distress ink and stamped 1996 Penny Black stamp - Christmas Wishes with purple ink. (I have also had this stamp for a long time)  Cut out with fancy scissors and layered on top.

If you would like to see the cards made the other members of the Christmas club their blogs are listed down the side of my blog.

I would like to add my card to the following:
