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.

My Time to Craft 528 - Create your own background

My Time to Craft 528 - Create your own background

I used to use paints and inks to make backgrounds on my handmade cards but unfortunately I cannot make handmade cards presently due to my bad hands and eyes.   Just making this digital card was hard as I can't see very well.  I have used pieces of digital papers to make the background.

I layered Mirtillamente precoloured digi stamp Le Pine Belle onto paper from Minimalist paper set.  Added strips of paper from papers for Ukraine and onto background paper from Bright Fall Paper set.
Added hearts and We are 3 sentiment.

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

I would also like to add my card to the following:
