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.

This is the challenge - Pirate Lollipops (with Water)
 This is the card I made last night
I printed out Make it Crafty digi stamp "Tropical Beach" onto white card and coloured with markers and chalks.  Found pirate ship on google, cut it out and layered on top.  Printed Sassy Studio Design "Pirate Penny" onto white card, coloured with markers and chalks and layered on top.  Added punched sun and shells.  Attached all to blue card.


  1. Margaret, she is a gorgeous pirate! Like your design and it all looks great fun!

  2. A really fun card! Love that pirate ship. I almost used a pirate image from Sassy Studio, too. Still might next time, they have some awesome images.
