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

Art by Miran facebook challenge

Just did this blog post then hit the wrong key and lost the lot.
Mi Ran kindly gave us one of her lovely images to use in her facebook challenge

I embossed purple card with Cuttlebug "Spots and Dots'.  Attached paper from Sugar and Spice Studio "Candy Christmas" 6x6 paper pad and atached ribbon.
Printed Art by Miran image "Lollipop Leslie" onto white card,  coloured with markers, cut out and attached to purple card.  Printed Crafty Sentiments "Celebrate Birthdays", punched out with circle punch, layered onto pink card which I punched with scallop circle and attached to purple card.
Layered all onto pink card.

Go on over to Art By Miran shop and see all her lovely images

and to her blog to see the lovely cards made by her design team (challenges coming soon)


  1. Sorry, Margaret, but half covered isn't enough - although it's a lovely card - would accept a small border left around the patterned paper, but not half the card - hope you will continue to share other cards xx

  2. That's okay Hazel, I thought that might be the case.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I read them all and really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
