AAA Birthday – Game #17 – Animals and Critters September 7, 2020 - And there we go…another month gone by already. So many stamp sets to choose from made this months theme hard for me, but I finally decided to go for simple. This stamp set from Concord and 9th made it easy and then the next decision was colour! You can’t go wrong with a rainbow colour […]
The Flower Challenge #47 – Add Sparkle August 21, 2020 - I am entering this card in The Flower Challenge #47. It’s tricky to photograph sparkle so scroll down to the close up photos to get a better idea.
Inkspirational Challenge #219 – FACE August 15, 2020 - I am entering this card in the current Inkspirational Challenge #219 with the theme of face.

Sending a Smile July 31, 2020 - I made this card to enter into the current Seize the Birthday challenge #196 – Tic Tac Toe . I chose the first column of birds, one layer and a large sentiment.

Colour combination inspiration July 9, 2020 - As part of a cardswap group I belong to, each month we are given a technique to make a card with. This month it is a “Scrappy Strip” technique.
