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

12 months of Christmas cards link up 57 - midway post - anything Christmas with optional twist kraft paper

12 months of Christmas cards link up 57 - midway post - anything Christmas with optional twist kraft paper
http://12monthsofchristmaslinkup.blogspot.com/

Our sponsor this month is Patties Creations
https://www.etsy.com/shop/pattiescreations

I forgot to do my blog post so it is running late.  I had problems with my printer scanner and couldn't scan my card so my grand daughter's friend took a photo with my grand daugter's phone.  I was going to do a better scan when I was able to get my printer working, but forgot.  I am so fuzzy headed with the Fibromyalgia and lack of sleep.  My husband was home on sick leave for 4 weeks with Influenza A and the Rhino virus.  He went back to work today but he is still not well. He coughed most of the night so I didn't get to sleep till after 5am.  He was able to sleep in but I had to get up early today. He had the flue injection but still got the flu.  I haven't had the injection.  I broke another tooth last week.  I am not looking forward to going to the dentist tomorrow.  I was able to get a cancelled appointment.

Here is my card


I coloured Patties Creations digi stamp Holiday Reindeer with chalks and Prismacolour pencils.  Layered onto Lisa's paper from this month's set A Krafty Christmas
Added sentiment from We are 3 Gift Labels sentiment set
Layered all onto Kraft card.

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

Everyone who links up a minimum of 2 cards will receive one of the papers from the set.  You can vote for your favourite

Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) September challenge - anything goes

Not Just Cards (cards also welcome) September challenge - anything goes
http://notjustcardschallenges.blogspot.com/

I have made a bookmark this month - I have 100s of rubber and clear stamps that I don't use much now as digital stamps are much easier on my sore hands but I decided I would try using stamps for this and found an old clear set by Lavinia Stamps in one of my drawers of clear stamps.  There is no name of the set it is just marked Lavinia Stamps


I cut gloss card into shape of bookmark and sponged it with Brilliance ink pads.  Stamped the stamps from the Lavinia Stamps set with different stamp pads.

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

Whoopsi Daisy design team card for September

The theme for the design team for the Whoopsi Daisy facebook group for September is back to school.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/294035750770262/


I have used paper, elements and sentiment from E-Scape and Scrap Back to School kit by Louise L.
Precoloured school digi stamp from Whoopsi Daisy collection 5.

You can buy all the Whoopsi Daisy collections direct from Linnie Pink.  They are all great value as they have lots of coloured and black and white digi stamps and papers.
You can see all the collections at https://www.facebook.com/groups/676930269357120/
and you can see the cards made by the design team and others on the Whoopsi Daisy Fans group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/294035750770262/
