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

Digital Scrapbooking Studio Beach ball Scrap-n-chat.

Each Saturday in June Digital Scrapbooking Studio is having a scrap chat in the community.    I missed the chat but was able to download the papers and elements from 10 June to make my layout.
https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/community/topic/17966-beach-ball-scrap-n-chat-june-10/

I couldn't find any beach photos to add so have used the dolphin as the main subject.

The next scrap-n-chat is on 24 June 10.00 to 11.00 EST

I would also like to add this to the following:
