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 - Snow Scene

I am not well and not coping with this heat so I completely forgot to do my card for the Christmas card club on Sunday.
At the moment it is 34.9C (94.82F) and predicted for today 38C (100.4F)
I spent yesterday having my hair cut in the morning and then stayed at Lynda's as she has airconditioning as it was very hot yesterday (35C).
Last night was very hot upstairs so hard to sleep.  We don't have any air conditioning.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler and raining.
I have used precoloured digi stamps and paper from Polkadoodles Here Comes Christmas CD.

If you would like to see the cards by the other members of the Christmas Club their names are listed down the left side of my blog.

I would like to add this card to the following:

CD Sunday - Twas the night before Christmas

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything Christmas

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Polkadoodles week 48 - anything goes

Sunny Day Crafting 27 - anything goes

A very cheerful Christmas card Margaret - do hope, and pray, you feel better soon

It sounds as though you wish you could have some of the snow from your card. Why can't we all have 'middling ' weather. You are too hot and we get too cold.
Lovely card Margeret and thank you for joining in with us.
