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.

Not Just Cards September - anything goes

Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) - anything goes

I found an old bookmark card I made in a class many many years ago and tried to make something similar. 

I was having a worse than normal pain day on the day I made this (8 Sept) so made a bit of a mess, also kept dropping the clear stamps on the floor so spent ages trying to find them.  Thankfully I found them all.

I sponged the inside of the card with distress inks
Stamped Verses Rubber Stamps - God's Promise and stars.  I have had both these stamps for a long long time and haven't use the verse for a while.
Stamped Happy Birthday

Sponged front of the card with distress inks and stamped Lavinia stamps
Punched hole, Added ribbon and rhinestones

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:
