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.

The Sweet Pea Stampers blog challenge - for the men/boys

I was so excited to be picked to be on the design team for the Sweet Pea Stampers blog
I made my card last week and put it onto the design team blog but when the challenge went live today I forgot to put my card on my blog.
We have to use a Sweet Pea stamp or digital stamp on the design team but it isn't compulsory for you to use a sweet pea image to join the challenge though if you do you will be entered into a second draw to win a free digital image.
The challenge is for the men/boys and this is the card I made
I embossed light blue card with football embossing folder and added washi tape.  I printed out Sweet Pea digital stamp "Soccer boy" by Karen Middleton and coloured him with markers.  Layered him onto darker blue card and then onto the light blue card.  Layered all onto the darker blue card.
Come on over and join in this fortnights challenge 


  1. So cute.... and I am happy and looking forward to work with you on the Sweet Pea Stampers! xox

  2. Cute card, Margaret - love the embossed background as well as your choice of image (I used that one too) - so glad to be part of the Sweet Pea Stampers team with such a talented bunch of crafters x

  3. Margaret, this is a fun card for any little/big boy. This image has now gone on my wish list as boys/mens cards can be so difficult at times. Sending you a warm welcome to the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team and I shall look forward to working with you and seeing the cards/projects that you create. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  4. What a gorgeous boys card Margaret, love the image, so sweet..Hugs Lozzy xx
