About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on eight design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute and fairly simple.
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.

http://www.deedeesdigis.com/search/label/Digi%20of%20the%20Month
Each month Deedee kindly gives us a free stamp set to use in the monthly challenge.  If you make a card and join the challenge you receive the next month's set free.   If you haven't already joined the challenge you can buy this month's set "Thinking Spot" for less than 1/2 price, join the challenge and you will receive next month's set for free
https://shop.deedeesdigis.com/store/p248/Thinking_Spot_%28October_2014_Digi_of_the_Month%29.html

 I have been so fuzzy headed I missed the close off date for the September challenge but because I have done every other challenge Deedee very kindly sent me this month's set and I have made my card early this time.
I have layered the mouse from the set onto paper from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Autumnal Sun stacked paper.  Layered the sentiment over the sign post.  Layered all onto orange and then white card.
