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:";">

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 504 - embossing wet or dry

Crafty Hazlenut's Christmas challenge 504 - Anything goes with optional theme embossing wet or dry

I have printed Penny Black angel stamp onto white card and coloured with chalks, markers and glitter pen.  Embossed green card with Crafts Too Christmas Holly frame embossing folder.  Cut out rectangle and layered over white card.  Coloured parts of green card with glitter pen.
Stamped Penny Black Merry Christmas and layered on top.  Added star brads.
Layered all onto purple card.  (The card looks blue in the scan but it is the same colour as the angel's dress)

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following:
