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

Christmas card club - Texture

Rachel picked the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight - Texture

Embossed white card with Cuttlebug snowflakes.  Added washi tape.  Printed precoloured digi from Gecko Galz Christmas time collage sheet and layered onto card.  Stamped Happy Christmas, cut out, sponged edges and layered on top.

If you would like to see the cards by the others in the Christmas card club their blogs are listed down the left side.

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

Crafty Hazelnut's weekly Christmas challenge 267 - vintage or anything Christmas

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas challenge - anything Christmas

Inspiration Destination  71 - anything goes

Simply Papercrafts 22 - anything goes

This Snowflake EF adds loads of texture to your pretty card, as did the tree design in the washi border. Cute vintage image, all combined to make a lovely card for this Texture challenge. TFS
