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.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

New Year,  New Beginnings or New Crafty Stash

I was lucky to win some new stamps in the December Facebook challenge.


I used one of the stamps I won the partly coloured Love Balloon.  I coloured the rest with chalks and markers.
We are 3 papers from Pinkalicious paper set
We are 3 sentiment from the new number birthday set (which Bonnie made specially for me and it is now in the shop for everyone to buy)
We are 3 coloured stackable flower (when you buy this set you receive pink and yellow flowers and black and white digi plus leaves and centres).
Added pink rhinestone.

I followed the second January sketch 175 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 so I would like to add my card to that challenge. ( I rotated the sketch to the left)
