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 & Rhymes 20 Oct - 2 Nov Purple

Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes 20 Oct - 2 Nov

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
PURPLE
Written by J. Howell




Purple is the color of LOVE
It’s the color I’m dreaming of
Purple is the color of PASSION
Purple is always in fashion
Purple is the color of DREAMS
Purple is the best it seems
Purple is the color of ME
Purple is the best you see

Purple is one of my favourite colours so I have made two cards.  Card 1 hand made and card 2 digital card.



Card 1 Hand made  I used left over pieces of papers from Kaisercraft 6-1/2" paper pad Violet Crush
ATC from Memories in the Making ATC collection paper pad "Spring"
Stamped Happy Birthday onto purple card and punched with scalloped oval punch
Added ribbon and twine and punched flowers
Layered all onto purple card.


Card 2 Digital:  I used paper, element and word art from E-Scape and Scrap Pretty in Purple by Dutch Dream Designs.

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

I used the October sketch at Cheerful Sketches for card 2 so I would like to enter my second card into that challenge.

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Nothing Gold can stay

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-october-6th-october-19th-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

Nothing Gold Can Stay

by Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay
.






I have used paper and precoloured elements from Digital Scrapbooking Autumn Crunch
Sentiment from We are 3 Autumn Sentiment set
