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

12 months of Christmas cards link up 57 - midway post - anything Christmas with optional twist kraft paper

12 months of Christmas cards link up 57 - midway post - anything Christmas with optional twist kraft paper
http://12monthsofchristmaslinkup.blogspot.com/

Our sponsor this month is Patties Creations
https://www.etsy.com/shop/pattiescreations

I forgot to do my blog post so it is running late.  I had problems with my printer scanner and couldn't scan my card so my grand daughter's friend took a photo with my grand daugter's phone.  I was going to do a better scan when I was able to get my printer working, but forgot.  I am so fuzzy headed with the Fibromyalgia and lack of sleep.  My husband was home on sick leave for 4 weeks with Influenza A and the Rhino virus.  He went back to work today but he is still not well. He coughed most of the night so I didn't get to sleep till after 5am.  He was able to sleep in but I had to get up early today. He had the flue injection but still got the flu.  I haven't had the injection.  I broke another tooth last week.  I am not looking forward to going to the dentist tomorrow.  I was able to get a cancelled appointment.

Here is my card


I coloured Patties Creations digi stamp Holiday Reindeer with chalks and Prismacolour pencils.  Layered onto Lisa's paper from this month's set A Krafty Christmas
Added sentiment from We are 3 Gift Labels sentiment set
Layered all onto Kraft card.

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

Everyone who links up a minimum of 2 cards will receive one of the papers from the set.  You can vote for your favourite
