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 - I'm looking over a four leaf clover

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 23 February to 7 March - I'm Looking over a four leaf clover

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
I'm Looking Over a Four-leaf Clover

I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before!



I have used paper, precoloured digi stamp, ribbon and four leaf clovers from Digital Scrapbooking Dolls of the World - Colleen of Ireland by ADB Designs
Sentiment from We are 3 For You sentiment set

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

More Mixed Media - anything mixed media with optional red

I have been busy trying to make all my design team cards for February and schedule them on my blog.   I am having eye surgery for glaucoma on Friday 7 February and Friday 21 February.  I don't know how long I will have to stay off the computer after each operation.  I spoke to the nurse on Monday and she said they would be able to tell me when I go back for the post operation check up on Monday.  (it is now Wednesday at 6.30 pm here in Sydney)

Please pray for me that the surgery will go well and I will be able to see better.   Thank you.
I added all the above as an update after this blog post was posted)

http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/freebie-progressive-challenge/forum/topics/progressive-freebie-challenge-february-2020

This month we received the image called My Best Friend from All Dressed Up

I have used papers from We are 3 Happy birthday paper set
All Dressed up digi stamp with sentiment My Best Friend which I have coloured with chalks and markers.

I followed the February sketch at Cheerful Sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge
http://cheerfulsketcheschallenge.blogspot.com/2020/02/februari-challenge.html
