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.

Word Art Wednesday 119

Challenge No 119 at Word Art Wednesday is anything goes with  inspiring or encouraging words

I have printed borders and sentiment from Daydream Designs Hope Endures combo set purple available to purchase at

Layered onto purple card and then onto green card.

I am going to send this card to my eldest daughter who is a real inspiration.  She had two operations for breast cancer at the end of 2010.  Then in 2011 20 weeks of chemotherapy and then 6 weeks of everyday radiotherapy.  In the middle of her chemotherapy treatment her husband died suddenly (only 40).   She is in remission but still on medication that makes her tired and feel sick most of the time plus gives her joint pains like arthritis.  She pushes herself to keep going for her daughter's sake (who just turned 15  this month).

She started a new job this year as a merchandiser and has been working hard the last couple weeks with a broken little toe.  Her foot is very sore as she is on her feet all day except for when she is in the car driving between stores.  She also has to crouch down a lot.

She relies on God for all she does so I would appreciate prayer for her.  Thank you.


  1. This girl has been through enough for three lifetimes. I will pray for her. This card is lovely, the sentiment is so very meaningful Margaret and she will be touched by your kindness. Thank you for sharing this with us, we enjoy seeing your unique style.

  3. Your encouragement surely helps to strengthen her. I just said a prayer for her...I can't imagine the anguish she has been through. But I also know we serve a very powerful God who can pour His strength and comfort into her heart. Blessings, sweet friend!

  4. Such a wonderful card. I love the simple design but powerful sentiment. So blessed that you joined us on last week's Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Our new Challenge is now live and can't wait to see what you will link up with us this week. Leaving you with this inspiration from God's Word in Psalm 30:5, "For His anger endureth but a moment, and in His favor is life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
