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 blog and facebook challenges - embossing wet or dry

The theme for Ching Chou Kuik May facebook challenge
and blog challenge

is embossing wet or dry

I printed and coloured this Ching-Chou Kuik stamp Sakura in March a while back with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens and yesterday I cut it out and layered onto purple card embossed with Sizzix embossing folder which I bought from Stampin Up years ago.
Added pink ribbon and pink lace.
Stamped Happy birthday onto pink card,  punched out and layered on top.
Added flowers and pearls.
Layered all onto white card.

I would also like to add my card to the following:
