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

Ching Chou Kuik - anything goes

The first monthly challenge at Ching Chou Kuik Digital stamps Inspiration and monthly challenge blog is anything goes 

Thankfully I had printed this digi out before my printer stopped working properly and I coloured it yesterday at stamp club.  My friend comes and takes me to stamp club sometimes on the 1st Friday of the month.

I printed Ching Chou Kuik's digi stamp Garden Daisy Fairy onto white and coloured with markers.  Layered onto orange and then onto three papers from Pininkie Daisies paper set, then onto white and then orange card.

The lovely stamps by Ching Chou Kuik are available from Sweet Pea Stamps and from Ching Chou Kuik's etsy shop.  I bought the above image from the Etsy shop

There is also a facebook group where all new members are very welcome.  The facebook group can be found at

I would also like to add this card into the following challenges;

Anything goes with a Twist challenge No 1 - anything goes

Crafty girls challenge 28 - anything goes.  Sadly Crafty Girls is closing at the end of October.

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge - anything goes covered with pattern paper

Paradise of Stamps challenge 3 - girly

Penny's Paper Crafty challenge blog No 197 - use at least three pattern papers
