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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. family:";">

Beautiful card, I love how you've played with the stencil and the embossing folder to create those patterns and all the textures you've added to the card. Thanks for joining us at A Place To Start. Hugs, María.

I’ll bet that hologram sparkle embossing glitter looks awesome on the mermaid in real. We get just a hint of it in the photo. But I can picture how bright glitzy it must be. I like that the waves are embossed in the paper. I have several embossing folders but usually forget about them after they are new. This is a sweet card.
