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 17 - winter scene

Mrs A picked the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she has picked winter scene

I  have used We are 3 papers from Christmas magic paper set
Polkadoodles precoloured digi stamp Winnie Buy the Tree from Winnie White Christmas download kit (you can also buy this as a individual digi)
Ribbon from Scrap Graphics

Typed sentiment in Word Art

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