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

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.com/

out sponsor this month is Christine Karron who has given us some lovely images to use

I used a piece of purple paper sent to me by a friend.  The paper had flower outlines on it.  I have coloured the flowers with a white gel pen and then doodled spots and butterflies.
Printed out Christine Karron  Lily of the Valley Fairy greyscale, cut out, coloured it with chalks, white gel pen and markers and layered onto paper.
Stamped Thinking of you with Brilliance Moonlight white ink.
Layered all onto purple card.  (The scanner has made it blue not purple.)

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Row Row Row your boat

The song for Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes this week is Row Row Row your boat
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/songs-and-rhymes-september-16-2018

The rules have changed and you no longer have to do clean and simple.  You can use anything that the song inspires.



My eyes were still very blurry when I made this so I have just made a very simple card using paper and digi stamp from E-Scape and Scrap Riverbank friends by Wisteria Moments.
Sentiment from We are 3 Sunshine sentiment set

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