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

As you Like it challenge 1

A new challenge site has started - As you like it.  Challenge 1 is favourite die and/or punch and a DT call
I made two cards today with two of the special digi stamps by Heather Valentin from Lacy Sunshine.
Heather has put 5 new stamps onto Lacy Sunshine as a special Fundraiser see
A  special cause dear to my heart is  RELAY FOR LIFE. For the  next  seventeen  days all proceeds  from the  sales of the 5 NEW Digis below will be  donated to   Relay For Life's Team Fight Spirit on May 18, 2013.   Please  join  together  in fighting Breast Cancer.
~Thank you....

Card 1:  Yellow card embossed with Crafts Too "butterflies" embossing folder.  Heather Valentin stamp "Anastasia Field of Flowers" printed on white card and coloured with markers and chalks.  Cut out with Fiskas circle cutter.  Added punched butterfly and flowers and rhinestones.  Stampin Up "Thinking of You" stamped onto white card and punched out with Stampin Up oval punch.  Layered onto purple punched with Stampin Up oval scallop punch then layered onto yellow card.  Yellow card layered onto purple card. 

Card 2:  dark pink card embossed with butterflies and flowers folder received free from Australian Card Only magazine.  Added washi tape.  Printed Heather Valentin digi stamp "Fidget's Hope" on white card and coloured with pink and yellow markers and chalks.  Layered it onto dark pink card.  Added butterfly and flower punches and rhinestone on flower.  Stamped "Wishing you Well" onto light pink card punched out with Stampin Up scallop square punch.  Layered onto dark pink card.  Dark pink card then layered onto light pink card.

My favourite punches as you can see are butterfly, flowers, and various Stampin Up punches.  My normal style is cute and fairly simple.  I also love washi tape and use my cuttlebug nearly every day.

I would love to be on the design team.

I am also entering the second card into Fab 'n' Funky challenge No 169.  Use lots of pink.
