About Me

Welcome to my blog

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

Sweet Pea Stampers challenge - Thinking of you/Missing you/Just because

The challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers this fortnight is Thinking of you/Missing You/Just Because
http://www.thesweetpeastampers.blogspot.co.uk/


I have layered mauve pattern paper from my stash onto purple card.  Added strip of floral pattern paper from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad "Violet Crush" down the side.
Printed Sweet Pea digi stamp "Gentle Dawn" by Ching Chou Kuik onto white, coloured with chalks and markers, layered onto green, white and then purple and then onto the pattern paper.  Added punched butterfly and flowers and rhinestones.

I hope you will go over to Sweet Pea Stampers and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamp but if you do you have two chances to win a prize.

You can buy the lovely Sweet Pea stamps at http://www.sweetpeastamps.com/
Gentle Dawn is available as a digi and a rubber stamp.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges:
