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.

Here is my card for Muse Club first challenge

A new craft club blog has started and this week is the first challenge.
Here is my card for the Muse Club's first challenge

 This was the inspiration card by Amy Kolling.  We had to use something in our stash and not purchase anything new.  As I have enough supplies to last a lifetime this was easy to do.

I was inspired by all the elements of Amy's card and I used Crafts Too embossing folder "butterflies frame" which has a square frame.  Striped paper from Basic Grey Marjolaine paper pad.  Yellow flowers punched with EK Success medium flower punch and green leaves punched with Martha Stewart leaf punch.  Stampin Up sentiment.  Thank you to Amy for her inspiration.


  1. Very pretty, great take on the inspiration card

  2. I love your white on white background Margaret!

  3. Fantastic card! Love how you were inspired by Amy's card. I especially like the embossed background.

  4. Gorgeous card! Great take on the inspiration card. I love those sweet flowers on the white background.

  5. You are so welcome! Your embossed panel was perfect as the backdrop for your gorgeous flowers. Yes, I have more "stash" than I will EVER know what to do with! LOL :)

  6. I love the embossed background, Margaret. I was almost going to do something similar, and may on a later card now that I've seen how stunning your card looks with it.
