Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on six 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.

I actually made this card on 1 August and was going to enter it into challenge 11 but then I entered a different card that I made with an image I won for challenge 10, so this card was put aside until this challenge.

I have layered sentiment from Create with TLC onto Soap bubble paper from Pininkie.
Printed out Art by Miran stamp Digi girl 8 color page bubbles up, coloured with markers, cut out and layered onto paper.  Layered all onto purple card.

Whoopsi Daisy challenge - no square cards

The challenge at Whoopsi Daisy this week is No Square cards.
http://cutedaisymay.blogspot.com.au/


I found the template for this trapezium shaped card in Australian Cardmaking Special edition Christmas cards.
Cut the card from the template, then cut paper from the same magazine and layered it onto the card.    Printed precoloured digi from Whoopsi Daisy CD, cut her out and layered onto paper.  Stamped Happy Christmas, sponged and layered that on top.  Added star brad and ribbon.

I hope you will go over to Whoopsi Daisy and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Whoopsi Daisy image but if you do and you are the winner you will receive 2 sheets of Whoopsi Daisy images.  If you don't use a Whoopsi Daisy image and you are the winner you will receive 1 sheet of Whoopsi Daisy images.

You can buy the lovely Whoopsi Daisy images at http://linnie-whoopsiedaisy.blogspot.com.au/
