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 group progressive challenge

Each month we receive a free digi stamp to join the progressive challenge at the Art by Miran facebook group.
If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's image at a discounted price and make a card for the October challenge and then next month you will be able to request the free image.

I have embossed light pink card with cuttlebug holly and berries.  Cut piece of pattern paper from Sugar n Spice "Candy Christmas" 6x6 paper pad and layered on top.
Added ribbon down the middle.  Printed out the lovely free digi girl 260 Eirwen, cut out and coloured with markers and layered her on top.  Added rhinestones and pearls.  Layered all onto dark pink card.

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