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

Oiutlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Christmas in July

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Christmas in July
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-june-28-july-11th-2020

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
I wish we were having Christmas in July
No winter anymore
Warm breezes by the shore
Long days beneath the summery sky

Santa doesn't have to hurry to leave town
There's nothing here but time
Gin, tonic, and some lime
He'll probably stick around

Three ships sailing on the ocean blue
All the children fast asleep
Now there's only me and you

Trees all decorate themselves with butterflies
Our blues are on the run
We're soaking up the sun
Yule time in paradise

Ukuleles playing "Silent Night"
Fragrant flowers in your hair
Your skin so fair and soft beneath the moonlight

Now it's winter and the snow is piling high
Let's change the holiday
Vacation far away
Next Christmas in July
Gin, tonic, and some lime
Next Christmas in July
Our blues are on the run
We're soaking up the sun
Next Christmas in July





I have used papers, Santa and coloured elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Summer Santa
Ships from Digital Scrapbooking Studio I saw three ships

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