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

July Morning by Uriah Heep
There I was on a July morning
Looking for love
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun
At the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm
And the night behind me
And a road of my own
With the day came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
La la la la

Sympathy card

I received sad news this week that my friend Beth who was my bridesmaid in 1969 lost her battle with cancer.   She was a wonderful lady and good friend.  I worked with her before and after my marriage and went to her wedding.  Her husband was a minister (not long retired) so they moved around a bit and I haven't seen her for many years but we kept in touch every Christmas.  Her husband, children, grand children and friends are going to miss her greatly.

I made this card to send to the family.

Cut out and added more glitter pen on to the wings and star and dress and layered onto pink card that I embossed with Cuttlebug daisies.  Added flowers and pearls.

SUMMER HOLIDAY
by Cliff Richard 
We're all going on a summer holiday
No more working for a week or two
Fun and laughter on our summer holiday

We're going where the sea is blue
We've all seen it on the movies
Now let's see if it's true
