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:";">

Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Spring is here

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - challenge 22 March - 4 April

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Spring is Here

Spring is here.
Spring is here.
How do you think I know?
I just saw a bluebird.
That is how I know.
Spring is here.
Spring is here.
How do you think we know?
We just saw a bluebird (bee, ladybug, butterfly, frog) that is how we know.
Do the bird walk and strut your thing.
Do the bird walk and flap your wings.
Do the bird walk do anything and look around for another sign of spring.

I have embossed pink card with Cuttlebug daisies embossing folder.
Printed Ching-Chou Kuik Heart of Spring digi stamp onto white card, coloured it with chalks and Prismacolor pencils, cut out and layered onto pink card.
Added ribbon
Stamped happy birthday and punched out and layered on top.
Added flower brads.
