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 Progressive freebie challenge for January

Mad for Markers Facebook Progressive freebie challenge for January

Each month Sammi kindly gives a free digi stamp to use.  If you make a project with the stamp and put it into the month's photo album we will send you the next month's image for free.

This month the free digi is New Year's girl.
I have layered her onto paper from Claire Tale Purple Bokeh and glitter paper set.  Added happy new year in word art.
Coloured digi stamp with copic markers.

I hope you will go over and join the Mad for Markers facebook group.  If you are a new member you can also request this month's digi stamp.

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

Allsorts 396 - something new (New year and new stamp)

C.R.A.F.T. 396 - anything goes

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

Creative Knockouts 174 - anything goes

My Time to Craft 337 - something new (New year and new stamp)
Winter Wonderland - For someone special/Happy New year
