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 25

 It was Christine's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas Card Club for this challenge the last one for this year and she picked die cuts.
I have used digital die cuts as my hands are too sore to do manual ones, I have also used coloured digi stamps as my eyes are too blurry to see to colour today.

I have used We are 3 sparkly paper from Christmas Magic paper set
Die cut circles from Pininkie
Coloured Digital stamps and sentiment from Jan's Digis Toyland Bear set
Ribbon from Scrap Graphics

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

I followed sketch 486 at Try Stampin or not on Tuesday with optional theme something sparkly (paper) so I would like to add my card to that challenge

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

A Perfect Time to Craft open challenge for December #12 -2020 - anything goes

Classic Design challenge December #12 2020 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

A very colorful and fun holiday card, Margaret! I like your use of the "embossed stitching" around the edges of your circle elements! Thank you for joining Try Stampin' on Tuesday for our sketch challenge that includes the option of using something "sparkly"! -Donna
