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

Pause Dream Enjoy challenge 9 - stamped image
https://pdelinkyparty.blogspot.com.au/

My base card is purple but my scanner hasn't shown the colour correctly.
I then added a piece of  purple & white spotted paper from the papers that Lozzy sent me for Christmas
I then added two strips of pink glitter washi tape.
Sponged white gloss card with pink Brilliance ink.
Stamped stamps from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps Fairies stamp set (I have had this set for a long time)
I have lots of rubber and clear stamps but I don't use them very often now.  Digital stamps are easier on my sore hands.

I hope you will go over to Pause Dream Enjoy and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Crafting with Dragonflies 98 - special folds

Crafting with Dragonflies 98 - special folds

I have made an easel card using We are 3 papers from Magical Butterflies paper set (there are 8 papers in the set)
Sentiment from We are 3 Birthday wishes sentiment set
Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp JL811 Butterfly Bella (you can also buy this digi as a black and white digi for you to colour).
Card behind Bella was embossed with Crafts Too butterflies embossing folder.

The photo is not very clear and does
not show the colours in the paper.   I usually scan my cards but had to take a photo as this was a stand up easel card.  I don't have a very good camera.

Drawing with Milly

My second grand daughter has started a 2 year graphic design course this year.  She has a 2-1/2 hour train trip each way to university.  At the moment she is going 3 days each week.

Yesterday she started a Patreon account where people can support her drawings
https://www.patreon.com/Drawingwithmilly/overview
You can support her for as little as $1 per month.  She has six different support amounts

This is what she has written on her page
Hi I’m emily or milly
im a student at Sae qantm and I’m learning graphic design
im an Australian artist starting out and wanting to share my art with the world 
hope to see many beautiful faces here on my page 😸
thank you so much for all the support 
talk to you all soon, milly

I have just made this card and used one of Emily's older drawings, she is drawing new drawings for her supporters.
Layered Emily's drawing onto 4 papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs Crazy Cat Lady bundle
Added sentiment from the same bundle.

I have used some of her other drawings on my blog recently

Scrappers Delight facebook challenge

Scrappers Delight has kindly given a free image to join the facebook group challenge
