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

Lyrics from Cinderella
Music and Lyrics by Al Hoffman, Mack David, and Jerry Livingston
Performed by Ilene Woods as Cinderella
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - April Showers

The song/rhyme this fortnight is April Showers
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-and-rhymes-april-7-to-20


Song/Rhyme: April Showers

Though April showers may come your way
They bring the flowers that bloom in May
So if it's raining have no regrets
Because it isn't raining rain you know, it's raining violets
And where you see clouds upon the hills
You soon will see crowds of daffodils
So keep on looking for a blue bird
And list'ning for his song
Whenever April showers come along


I have used paper and rain overlay from We are 3 April Showers paper collection
Precoloured printable from We are 3 Window layers 2 (there are 4 different ones in the set)
Precoloured printable from We are 3 Window View 2 (there are 4 different ones in the set)
Sentiment from We are 3 Spring sentiment set

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
You have two weeks to join in and you can use anything that fits the theme.
