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 - Frosty the Snowman

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-november-17-december-7-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe
And a button nose and
Two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the snowman
Is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around



I have used six papers from We are 3 Christmas Magic paper set
Sentiment from We are 3 Happy Christmas
We are 3 precoloured digi stamp Hipster Snowman
Scalloped border from Pininkie

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

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 464 - use some glitter

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 464 - anything Christmas with optional theme use some glitter
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/


I use old stamps I have had for a long time.
I stamped stars onto gloss card with versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
Then brayered over with Kaleidacolor raised rainbow dye inkpad fruitcake which I have also had for a long time.
Stamped Stamp It stamp on top.  (Stamp is not very clear, that is why I use mostly digital stamps now as they are easier on my sore hands)
Added lots of glitter.
Layered all onto red card and added more glitter.

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