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.

The Sketchy challenges 121

The Sketchy challenges No 121

I printed the Stamping Boutique digital stamp max onto white card and coloured him with markers. (Because of my sore eyes I can't see to colour small images so I then scanned it and reduced it down to fit onto my card.) Layered onto three papers from Imagine That Lacey's bell kit.  Sentiment from Imagine That Jammin Janey set.  Added stars.

This is the sketch

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

Always fun 10 - for a male or Dad

Crafty Cardmakers 190 - for a special man/boy

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Create and Makes 12 - anything goes/optional twist use yellow

Love to Scrap 98 - boyz rule

Tuesday Throwdown 347 - for the men

Unicorn 22 - for the guys
