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

Classic Design special challenge Save Australian animals

Classic Design special challenge save Australian animals
https://classicdesignchallenge.blogspot.com/2020/02/save-australian-animals-challenge.html

The bushfires in Australia have been devastating and as well as lots of homes lost and people dead many many animals were killed or injured.

Whimsy Stamps and Dis Digis have made special images of Australian animals. 
See the Classic Design challenge blog for all the details


I have used 2 papers from We are 3 Trees paper set
Koala digi stamp from Whimsy Stamps Love for Australia set
There are 5 animals the leaves and a sentiment sheet in this set

All proceeds from the sale of this digital stamp set will benefit WIRES - Emergency Fund for Wildlife. This set is only available for a limited time. When you purchase you are helping the animals suffering from the bush fires consuming Australia.

LeAnn's facebook group progressive freebie challenge No 30

Each month LeAnn kindly gives us a free digi stamp to use in the progressive freebie challenge.  If you make a project with the stamp and join the challenge you can request the free digi the next month.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1836531013324656/

I am late making my card for the challenge and challenge 31 has already started today.


I have coloured Party Time digi stamp with markers.
Added We are 3 sentiment from Fabulous sentiment set
 (Unfortunately my colouring is not very good as I still can't see very well after my eye surgery.  Thankfully I made all my February and some of my March design team cards and scheduled them before my first surgery on my right eye last week.   I have the surgery on my left eye next Friday)
