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

Guest designer bookmarks

I was invited by Anne Lise Johannessen to be a guest designer on her site
http://www.barnemix.no/index.php/hobby/kortlaging/252-bokmerker
and she sent me some lovely images to use to make bookmarks.

We have been so lucky to be sponsored by Lulu Design Art with some digital pictures that are great for bookmarks plus image from Jess College Fund.

I have made three bookmarks and they are now on her site.  My only problem is I can't read it as it is in another language.




The first two are made using the coloured images from Lulu Design Art    https://www.etsy.com/shop/LuluDesignArt
layered onto papers from Dollar Graphics Depot, plus washi tape and twine.

On the third one is a lovely stamp from Jess College Fund    http://www.jesscollegefund.blogspot.no/
I have printed the image onto white card, coloured with markers and cut out.
Background made up as follows:  Spring flowers papers and digi ribbons from Dollar Graphics Depot, cloud paper from Pink Gem.  Top sentiment from Create with TLC and I have typed the second one.

I was happy to be asked to make these and had fun making them.

$4 US for the Christ is Risen set which has pre coloured plus black and white images for you to colour plus 8 sentiments.
