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 November - Remembrance or Thanksgiving or Thinking of You

 Ching-Chou Kuik November challenge - Remembrance or Thanksgiving or Thinking of You.

I usually make two CCK cards but my eyes are very sore and I can't see very well to colour so have only made one so far this month.

I made this card a week ago but didn't get to post it till now.

I used Ching-Chou Kuik partly coloured digital stamp Poppy Fairy (hair, face and skin were precoloured).  I coloured the dress, necklace, wings and poppies with markers and glitter gel pens.  Coloured background with blue and green chalks.
Added extra coloured poppies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
We are 3 sentiment from All Occasion sentiment set

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

I always enjoy looking at your cards and this is no exception.
I hope the sore eyes are not a result of a serious long term condition. I get injections in one eye for the wet macular degeneration. That has meant no more coloring, as edges do not line up correctly in my view. And now chemo is making me lethargic, though not ill.
Most of the cards I do make are black and white or use pre colored digis.
All the best to you.
