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

Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Use a recycled item

Christmas Crafts All Year Round - use a recycled item
http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.com/



I was looking through some old boxes and I found some Christmas cards I stamped and coloured many years ago and didn't use.  I cut out the sentiment and the Teddy bear.  Sponged the edges of the sentiment.  Layered the Teddy onto a piece of scrap red card.  Layered both onto a left over piece of paper from Christmas basics paper pad and layered all onto white card.

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:
