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.

 More Mixed Media - anything goes with optional brown

I wiped distress inks over stamp block, sprayed with water and wiped onto white card.

Stamped Lavinia LAV097 birds.

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

My card is a bit of a mess.  It didn't turn out how I wanted.  I am in a lot of pain with the Fibromyalgia and arthritis and also my mouth.   I broke another tooth and lost part of the filling.   When I first rang the dentist on Friday I couldn't get an appointment till 19 September but they rang later as someone cancelled for next Wednesday.    So I will be going on Wednesday 8 September.
My husband is booked to have his second Covid injection on Thursday 9 September so I am going to have my first one then.  We are still in lockdown at least till end September.

I would like to add my card to the following:

A beautiful scene, love how the fairy stamp looks like she is blowing a kiss to the butterfly, very sweet. Many thanks for sharing over @ Creative Artiste.

You may think it a mess but I'm so impressed with your background!! What a wonderful technique! I've not tried that before.

I do hope things go well at the dentist for you tomorrow (although it might be your today already as I'm writing from Canada!).

Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week!

You've created a wonderful scene in a great colourway. There's a fabulous sense of depth with the faded hills in the background and a detailed foreground with the delightful fairy.
Thank you for joining in with our September challenge "Anything Mixed Media Goes" at Creative Artiste Mixed Media. Good luck x
