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.

Outlawz Monday Greetings - Use vintage paper + a sentiment

Outlawz Monday Greetings - Vintage paper + a greeting

Our sponsor is Moonflower Digi stamps

My eyes are bad so I printed out the Moonflower digi stamp Gigis Gift large, coloured it with markers and then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.
Added vintage paper and brads from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
We are 3 sentiment from Special Birthday sentiment set

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

I followed sketch 201 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I rotated the sketch

I would also like to add my card to the following

Addicted to Stamps and More 398 - birthdays

I love your little princess and how you colored it. So sorry about your bad eyes, but you did a very good job! I love it! Thank you for sharing at Aud Sentiments. Valérie DT

I love that you have found a way that works for you! Printing the image large in order to best add color and then scan and shrink is brilliant. I like how the image panel pops against the lovely green background. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
