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.

My card for Sunny Challenges SC05812

My card for Sunny Challenges SC05812

We had to use black and white only using the following sketch
I used Stampin Up Stamps, paper and punches, plus Crafts-Too Embossing folder "Daisy and Swirl" on the white card.  The scan is not very clear.  The white card would probably have showed up better if I had mounted it onto a black card.  The stamps were stamped with black ink and the paper is black and white but they look blueish in the scan..


  1. This is really pretty Margaret. I love the beautiful image and dsp. The embossing on the white just adds the finishing touch. Thanks for playing along at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

  2. Margaret,
    Another lovely card. I recently made a Black and White postcard with a small splash of another color. :)
    I will upload it soon to my blog.
    Please visit when you get a chance. :)

  3. Your card is lovely, Margaret. I, too, love the embossing on the white panel. The sentiment is perfect in the scallop oval punch, too. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations!

  4. Lovely choice of DSP & stamp Margaret to create a lovey card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sunny Challenges & Creations

  5. LOVE the elegant design and your beautiful silhouette! What a wonderful card!
