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

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - 19 May to 1 June

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - 19 May to 1 June
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Song/Rhyme:
The Butterfly by Heather Reneé Adamkiewicz
As love falls down from the sky, It lands on the wings of a butterfly.
The butterfly sings its songs and rhymes, and flies through the air, no concept of time.
It is the messenger of patience and change, from flower to flower, it's odd and it's strange.
The butterfly can transform its world.
And give way to new beginnings, unfurled, it is the keeper of transformation, and flies on faith and imagination.
The butterfly as no fear of change, it bravely escapes its homemade cage.
To change, it knows is necessary, for all the burdens we need not carry.
The butterfly soars, and merrily sings, For, without change, it could never grow wings.





I have used papers, elements and word art from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Lavender Fields by Heartstrings Scrap Art.  Extra butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Lavender Fields by Simplette

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.  You can make anything you like that fits the theme.
