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

The digistamp can be found here: https://marketplace.zibbet.com/leannsworl…/sam-digital-stamp
The challenge will run from March 15th to April 12th.

I have used We are 3 papers from Just a Song and Margaret's Irises paper sets
We are 3 sentiment from Special birthday sentiment set
LeAnn's World 101 digi stamp Sam which I coloured with markers, then scanned and reduced down to fit on my card.  (I still can't see very well)

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 5 - 18 April - Raindrops

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme
RAINDROPS
Down came the raindrops on a cloudy day,
Wetting all the pavements, washing dirt away,
Waking little brown buds, thirsty seeds as well:
Right into the blades of grass the tiny raindrops fell.

Pitter, patter, pit, pat!  this is how they came;
Pitter, patter, pit, pat!  let us do the same.
Pitter, patter, pit, pat!  splashing one by one,
Thank you, God, for gentle raindrops – rainy days are fun!


Minnie R. Boyd
