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

Outlawz progressive freebie challenge for October

Each month a different designer gives a free digi stamp for us to use for the Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge.
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/freebie-progressive-challenge/forum/topics/progressive-challenge-october-2020

If you haven't already joined in you can join the challenge and send an email requesting the image, make a project for the challenge and then you will receive the free image next month.

This month Oddball Art has provided two images one cute and one creepy - Sugar the Zombie

I have embossed a bright orange card with Sissex embossing folder (my scanner didn't scan the colour correctly, the card is a similar colour to the ribbon, but brighter)
Added strips of orange paper from My Minds Eye - Stella Rose Mabel papers 6x6 pad
Added orange ribbon
Embossed another piece of orange card with the Sissex embossing folder
Printed Oddball Art digi stamp Sugar the Zombie (cute version), coloured with orange and yellow markers and cut out and layered on top.  Coloured heart from stamp with orange marker and punched out with circle punch.
Stamped Best wishes with orange stamp pad and punched out with circle punch.  Layered circles on top.
