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

Gerda Steiner progresssive freebie challenge

Each month Gerda Steiner kindly gives a free digi stamp to join the progressive freebie challenge.  If you make a project using the stamp you will receive the next month's free.
If you haven't already joined in you can buy this month's digi, make a project for the challenge and you will receive next month's free.

I have embossed pink card with Cuttlebug Kimmy Luvs embossing folder.
Printed Gerda Steiner digi stamp GSD631 Panda in love onto heart from Pininkie Hearts Japanese. Cut out and coloured with markers and layered onto embossed card.  Added paper lace.  Stamped Best Wishes onto pink card and punched out with heart punch.  Layered onto dark pink punched heart and layered on top.
Layered all onto dark pink card.
I haven't coloured the panda the right colours but it is so hot here it is hard to think.
