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 facebook group & blog challenge - animals

Ching-Chou Kuik facebook group and blog challenge - animals

At the beginning of the month I did print out 2 images to make two cards for the challenges but my eyes are so fuzzy I am finding it difficult to colour.  I see the specialist again next Thursday.

It took me a few days to colour this image a bit at a time with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.    I then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.

I have used papers from We are 3 Dotted Swiss paper set
We are 3 sentiment from Birthday Wishes sentiment set
Butterfly and flower from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
Ching-Chou Kuik digi digital stamp Sakura in March

I followed Sweet Sketch Wednesday April sketch 181 so I would like to add my card to that challenge
