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.

Digitally Made reminder for August challenge - Pets/animal

The August challenge at Digitally made is a 100% digital project with pets or other animals.
http://digitallymadechallenges.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/challenge-4-petsanimals.html

I have made a scrapbook page and used papers and elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Have added an old photo of my second grand daughter with her pet lizards and a current photo of her sister with one of the lizards.    The lizards are kept in my grand daughters bedroom but are brought out now and again to play.
The other photo is of her boy friend and his guinea pig.

I hope you will go over and join in the challenge.
Remember all projects must be 100% digital.

I would like to add this layout to the following:

Cutie pie challenge 114 - boys will be boys
http://cutiepiechallenge.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/challenge-no-114-boys-will-be-boys.html

I made this card for my 2nd grand daughter's boyfriend for his birthday this month.  He has two pet guinea pigs.

While they were visiting me a few weeks ago he drew this boy for me and I printed the boy and added the precoloured guinea pigs, leaves and cage from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.   I coloured the boy with markers and the background with chalks.

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