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.

My card for Feeling Sketchy No 14

This is my card for Feeling Sketchy No 14
This was the sketch we had to work to.  Sketch by Jess D.

I used a flower instead of a bow as I don't do bows well.
Used white lace, Martha Stewart punch to punch scalloped purple border and flower rhinestones.   Bear is Penny Johnson clear stamp coloured with Tria markers and chalks.  Best wishes stamp by Stamp World.  
This is the only challenge this card is entered into.  I will now post it to a cyber friend for her birthday this week.


  1. 14 not 15! lol... no idea why I thought it was 15... the weeks are going fast enough without me adding to them!

    Thansk for playing along with us at Feeling Sketchy again Margaret, always love seeing your work!

    Love the bear, he is so cute with his bird friend and all the flowers around them!

  2. Hello Margaret. What a lovely card and the embossed background really highlights your beautiful image. Finished off perfectly with the pretty border and flower.
    Have a lovely crafty day.
    Love Sandra xxx

  5. Hi Margaret! Another beautiful card :) That teddy bear is adorable! How do you find the Tria markers? Thanks for playing again this week :)

    1. Thank you Jess. I like the Tria markers, I find them easier to use with my arthritic hands.
