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 Progressive Freebie challenge for March

 I am running behind this month and having problems seeing typing this post and am just in time to join the Outlawz Progress Freebie challenge for March

Each month a different digi designer gives a free digi to use in the Outlawz Progressive challenge and if we make a project for the challenge we receive the free image next month.

If you haven't already joined in you can join the challenge and send an email requesting the image and make a project for the challenge, then the next month you will receive the free image.

This month we are sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls

who has given us the lovely image Lulu Bee

My eyes are bad so I printed the Paper Nest Dolls digi stamp Lulu Bee large and coloured it with chalks, markers and glitter gel pen then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.
Layered onto We are 3 papers from Bumble Bee paper set
Added lace from Digital Scrapbooking Studio by Lara's Digi World
Added extra bees, flower and sentiment from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Honey Bee from various artists.

I followed sketch 653 at Sketch Saturday

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