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

Mad for Markers facebook group progressive freebie challenge

I am posting this a day early as I have 6 design team cards scheduled to post tomorrow.

On the Mad for Markers facebook group we were given a free digi to join the October challenge and if you made a card with the freebie and put it in the album you will receive the November free image.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/209806932505715/

This is my sample with the free image for November - Christmas girl face

I have used lots of layers to make my card.  Layered Christmas Girl face onto scalloped frame from Pininkie.  Coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and layered onto two papers from Christmas basics 12x12 pad.  Added Merry Christmas sentiment from paper from the same pack.  Added punched holly leaf and rhinestones.  Layered all onto red card and then onto green card.

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

Mad for Markers Angel card

I was happy when Sammi at Mad for Markers opened her new shop at Rockdale a few weeks ago.  She still has her on line shop for those who can't get to the shop.  She has a lot of lovely digi stamps on the on line shop   http://www.madformarkers.com.au/NEWcatalog/

One of the digi stamps in the shop is Angel Girl Brianna which can be used for a Christmas card or a thinking of you card or a birthday card.


I embossed dark pink card with Cuttlebug Christmas stars and cut a circle out.  Printed Angel Girl Brianna onto white card and coloured her with Copic markers.  Layered the pink card on top.  Added flowers which I bought from the Mad for Markers shop.   Added bow and ribbon from my stash.

Have a look at the blog for some more ideas http://madformarkers.blogspot.com.au/

Reminder for Digitally Sweet challenge - use pink a little or a lot

You still have a few more days to enter the challenge at Digitally Sweet.  As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month our challenge this month is use pink a little or a lot
http://digitallysweetchallenges.blogspot.com.au/2016/10/dsc-155-with-digistamps4joy.html
Our wonderful sponsor this month is Digistamps4Joy who has some lovely images suitable for this theme.   http://www.digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/
I have used one of her precoloured digi stamps by Jen which was released on the blog last Sunday
http://digistamps4joy-sa.blogspot.com.au/2016/10/new-digistamps-sunday-16-october-2016.html

I made this quick simple card today to send to a friend who is very ill.


I have layered Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp Raggedy Lil Angel onto paper from Lozzy's mixed media paper set.  Added ribbon bow from Digital Scrapbooking Studio and typed sentiment.
(You can also buy this stamp in black and white for you to colour.)

Lozzy is in the process of setting up her new blog where you will be able to buy her papers.  But if you would like any of them before then have a look under the Paper Pick tab on the A Bit More Time to Craft challenge blog and send an email to Lozzy at the address there.  She is off line for the next couple days so don't send until after 22 October.

My eldest daughter is a breast cancer survivor (5 years) still on treatment but sadly we have lost some friends over the past couple years.

I hope you will go over to Digitally Sweet and join in the challenge.   You can enter 3 times but all entries must be 100% digital.

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