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:";">

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes Oct 2

 October Sunday Songs and Rhymes Oct 2

Be inspired by the song/rhyme

by John Updike from A Child's Calendar
The month is Amber,
Gold and Brown.
Blue ghosts of smoke
Float through the town.
Great V’s of geese
Honk overhead.
And maples turn
A fiery red.
Frost bites the lawn.
The stars are slits
In the black cat’s eye
Before he spits.
At last, small witches,
Goblins, hags,
And pirates armed
With paper bags.
Their costumes hinged
On safety pins,
Go haunt a night
Of pumpkin grins.

Our sponsor is Polkadoodles

I used the month is Amber, Gold and Brown as inspiration for my card

I used papers, buttons and flowers from Digital Scrapbooking Changing Colours collection by Ilonka's Designs.  Leaves from Leaves 18 by Carin Grobe Design
Polkadoodles coloured digi stamp Marigold from The Darling Buds  Big Bundle digital craft digi stamps download.
Typed sentiment.

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