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 Paper Shelter blog hop


 Good Morning lovely crafters!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on the 8th of December!  This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part.

The theme for this special challenge is:


If you've arrived here from Christine's blog, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't want to miss out on this one.  Both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter, and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice, as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.

Here is my card

I have used four of The Paper Shelter papers from A Curious Cake paper set
The Paper Shelter precoloured digi stamp from Olivia set
Ribbon and brads from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

From here, you will need to hop on over to Heidi's blog  Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store!
Please say in your comment that you would like to go into the draw to win the Paper Shelter image

Also don't forget to join in the challenge

Good Luck!  Hope you've enjoyed the Hop so far!
