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

Our sponsor this month is Luna Girl who has given us some lovely collage sheets to use.
https://lunagirl.com/


I have used coloured image from Luna Girl Joyeaux Noel collage sheet
3 papers from this month's paper set Brads Buttons and Bows: Christmas edition
Added 3 brads

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, ADD AT LEAST THREE BRADS, BUTTONS, BOWS or a combination of all threeto on your card. So for ex., you can add one brad, one button and one bow; three brads; two buttons and a bow; or any other combo. You can always add more but we want to at least see three.

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Lunagirl store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Brads, Buttons & Bows: Christmas Edition.
