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.

My card for Sunny Challenges SC05812

My card for Sunny Challenges SC05812
http://sunnychallenges.blogspot.com.au/

We had to use black and white only using the following sketch
I used Stampin Up Stamps, paper and punches, plus Crafts-Too Embossing folder "Daisy and Swirl" on the white card.  The scan is not very clear.  The white card would probably have showed up better if I had mounted it onto a black card.  The stamps were stamped with black ink and the paper is black and white but they look blueish in the scan..



My cards for Lollipop challenge No 54

Challenge 54 at Lollipop Ladies is to use one colour from the Gobstopper picture and do a monochromatic card
http://thelollipopladies.blogspot.com.au/
I have chosen purple.  I made three sympathy cards yesterday and another one a few days ago, so thought as they were all purple I would use them for this challenge.  I only ever enter my cards in one challenge.



I have used different shades of purple card, stamps from the Our Daily Bread designs 2009 and an unmounted Stamp it Set. Sharing in your sorrow from Stampin Up set.  Butterflies embossing folder, ribbon, flowers and brads.
I used the butterflies on my cards as when my father died my 3 eldest grand daughters were only little and I used the butterfly as an example.   As a caterpillar dies a beautiful butterfly flies up into the sky.  When we die our body dies but our spirit flies up to heaven.
