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.

Graduation card

My third grand daughter Sian has been working very hard the last four years at university and she graduated with honours.  The Graduation ceremony was postponed due to COVID but it will be on next week .   

I made this card for her

I used three We are 3  papers from Celebrate paper set
and one Polkadoodles paper from Winnie Celebrations 3 download kit
Polkadoodles precoloured digi stamp Graduation and sentiments from Winnie Celebrations 3 digital download kit (you can also buy this digi stamp separately)
brads from Digital Scrapbooking Studio

I followed sketch 423 at Atlantic Hearts challenge - I rotated the sketch

I would also like to add my card to the following
