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.

Creative Fingers 187 - anything goes

Creative Fingers 187 - anything goes

I  sponged tag with Distress Inks Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord and stamped Lavinia fairy with Ranger Raspberry Adirondack Brights ink pad
Layered onto card which I embossed with butterfly and flowers embossing folder which I have had for a long time (unfortunately there is no brand name on the folder so I can't tell you which brand it is)
Added flowers, pearls, lace and ribbons.
