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.

Sunny Challenges SC 76/13

This fortnights challenge on Sunny Challenges is a sketch and use a background stamp or stamp the background

This is the card I made this morning

I have used Stampin Up Dots and Daisies for the background on mauve card.  Embossed purple card with Cuttlebug "Daisies" embossing folder.  Embossed green card with Sizzix embossing folder.  Stamped mauve card with stamps from Stampin Up "Simply Said" stamp set.  Coloured flowers with gel pens.  Added a dragonfly brad, attached all to purple card and then to main card.

Come over to Sunny Challenges and join the challenge.  The link closes in 7 days.


  1. Margaret, this is so pretty and I love the green with the mauve. It is not a combo that I would normally use but seeing it here I might just have to try it! Thank you so much for joining us again at Sunny Challenges and Creations for this challenge

    1. Thank you Gwen. I have made a lot of cards with mauve and lime green. Usually the green as the background card.
