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

My Time to Craft Christmas challenge - favourite Christmas stamp

My time to Craft Christmas challenge - favourite Christmas stamp
https://mytimetocraftchristmas.blogspot.com/

My favourite Christmas stamp is a little Judikins 'Angel rubber stamp which I have had for a long time. 
I loved the stamp when I saw it on someone's card and it took me a long time to find it.
I have made two cards as you can't see the stamp very well on the first card.




Card 1:  I embossed green textured card with Crafts Too Christmas Tree frame embossing folder and sanded.  Stamped Angel and Happy Christmas with Versafine Clair ink and heat embossed with Wow embossing powder Opaque Bright White regular.

Card 2:  I embossed purple textured card with Creative Impressions Shimmering stars embossing folder.  Stamped Angel and Happy Christmas onto velum, embossed with Wow Embossing glitter Clear Hologram sparkle and attached to purple card with star brads.

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

 I would like to add my card to the following:
