Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
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!

Sweet Stampin Challenge

I made this card today for my Son and found that it fits this week's challenge on Sweet Stampin which is to make your own backgrounds. I used backing paper and stamped it with "Merry Christmas" greeting randomly and heat embossed with silver powder then stamped snowflakes onto vellum paper and again heat embossed. Very pleased with the result.
