I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Triple Challenge Card

Woohoo - I'm on a roll :) This card fits three challenges:-

  1. Sketch Saturday #106 - sketch layout
  2. Our Creative Corner - Colour(black & white) with texture
  3. Penny Black #104 - Swirls
The sentiment stamp was in a mixed bag of PB stamps that I received in a RAK but cannot remember who from (oops!) I experimented with my Blossoms Nesties and cut two frames so could still see the paper below.

Sentiment: Penny Black
Tools: Cuttlebug, circle, scallop circle & blossom nesties, EK Success photo corner punch
Others: Ribbon, brads and spacers from stash
