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

Lacy Sunshine challenge 58 - monochrome

Challenge 58 at Lacy Sunshine is monochrome (shades of one colour)
Each month Heather kindly gives us  a free image to use in the challenge.
If you enter a card with a Lacy Sunshine stamp you can request the free image for the next challenge.
I already had this challenge free image "Prism ethereal enchantress".  I have printed her out, coloured with pink markers and layered onto light pink card which I embossed with Cuttlebug daisies embossing folder.
I embossed dark pink card with Crafts Too Butterfly embossing folder.  Added strip of pink pattern paper from Authentic 6x6 bundle Uncommon.  Added pink lace and pink ribbon.  Layered image on top.  Stamped Best wishes on another piece of pink which I embossed with the daisies embossing folder.  Punched out with scallop circle punch and layered on top.  Layered all onto light pink card.

I used the sketch from Aud Sentiments 131 so I will also add this card to that challenge

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges:

3 Girls Jam challenge - anything goes with ribbon

Cheerful Stamp Pad - fairies

Crafty Boots - ribbon or lace

Craft you passion 261 - anything goes

Creative Card Crew 87 - embossing

Cute Card Thursday 373 - lovely lace

Cuttlebug Mania - add ribbon

Cutie Pie challenge 87 - layer it up

Paradise of Stamps 18 - Lace and ribbon

Sister Act card challenge 106 - anything goes

V's sweet ideas - emboss it
