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

Alicia Bel facebook group challenge - 4th card

April challenge on the Alicia Bel facebook group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/187877358304468/
The theme is animals, real or fantastic or beings that are animals in part, such as mermaids, centaurs, etc.
Also worth any digi where an animal, insect, fish, etc. appears. Even if it's like a pet. Or any digi where the character wears an animal costume. 

We had to make teams of four for the challenge.  I am in the team with Lisa JannawaySusan Bennett and Bonnie Kohane.
We are having fun making cards and chatting to each other.  The team finished the first four cards and guessed the clues correctly.



We decided that we wanted to make some more cards using the lovely Alicia Bel digi stamps so here is my fourth card for the challenge.


I have coloured Alicia Bel stamp Little Mermaid bubles using twinkling H2O watercolour paints for the tail and hair and Copics for the skin and eyes.    I coloured the fish with gel pens but the bright colours don't show up in the scan
The background is coloured with H2O watercolour paints Sea Spray, Bashful Blue and Cool water.

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

My third card for Alicia Bel Facebook group challenge

April challenge on the Alicia Bel facebook group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/187877358304468/
The theme is animals, real or fantastic or beings that are animals in part, such as mermaids, centaurs, etc.
Also worth any digi where an animal, insect, fish, etc. appears. Even if it's like a pet. Or any digi where the character wears an animal costume. 

We had to make teams of four for the challenge.  I am in the team with Lisa JannawaySusan Bennett and Bonnie Kohane.
We are having fun making cards and chatting to each other.  The team finished the first four cards and guessed the clues correctly.

We decided that we wanted to make some more cards using the lovely Alicia Bel digi stamps so here is my third card for the challenge.


I have used the four papers from We are 3 Woodland delight & sentiment set
Sentiment from We are 3 Dreams sentiment set
Alicia Bel digital stamp Anita and her unicorn which I have coloured with markers
(My eyes are very fuzzy so my colouring is not right)

The Woodland Delight set will be on special for 1/2 price with 8 other mini sets from
13 April EST to 16 April 

I followed sketch 448 at Tuesday morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge


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

CCC digi creations 91 - Include an animal

Crafty Animals 13 - anything goes with an animal

Creatalicious 136 - anything goes with optional friendship
