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.

CD Sunday - Sillouettes

The challenge at CD Sunday this fortnight is Silhouettes and you must use something from a CD on your card.
http://cdsundaychallenge.blogspot.com.au/

I have layered silhouette from Joanna Sheen's Dancing with Shadows CD which I have had for a long time onto paper from Pininkie Musical notes paper set.  The original paper is black but I have recoloured it to match the oval round the silhouette.  Have added sentiment from Create with TLC.  Layered all onto black and the white card.

I would also like to enter this card into Crafty Hazelnut's patterned paper challenge

Faery Ink challenge - halloween (plus others)

Challenge No 2 at Faery Ink is halloween
http://faeryinkdesigns.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/challenge-2-halloween.html

I was really lucky and won the first challenge and Amanda made a special digi stamp for me, plus coloured version, coloured one with my name and the banner which I have put on my blog.  I have used the coloured one with my name and faded it a little to use as a watermark on this card.   I also won 3 other digital stamps so have used one of them in my card.


I have printed out Faery Ink stamp "Pumpkin Cutie", coloured with markers, layered onto orange and then onto paper from Bearly Mine Designs Fall Fancy paper set.  Layered all onto orange and then onto white card.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges.

I am still sick today.  Can't stop coughing so I am a bit slow.

My husband is not having a good day.  Trying to fix the toilet he broke a piece so had to make a trip to Bunnings.  On the way there he was just one car away from a bad accident.   The car that caused the accident ran into one car going the same way as him swerved across the road and hit the car in front of Tony, swung that car around, and then he hit a fence and ended upside down in the canal.     Tony managed to get into Bunnings.  When he came out of Bunnings there were police, ambulance and fire engines.    We thank God our car wasn't hit and Tony was okay though a bit shaken.
