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

Our sponsor this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps
https://bugaboostamps.com/


I cut three pieces of white card and coloured with Liquid brush markers.
Embossed with set of three Darice embossing folders.   I have had them for a long time but I think this is the first time I have used them. I layered all three onto purple card.
Printed Bugaboo precoloured digi stamp Kids 0001.  (I have had this stamp since 2016 and I couldn't find it in the new shop,) cut out and layered on top.  
Added We are 3 sentiment from Itty Bitty sentiment set
Added two purple brads.
Layered all onto green card.

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