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

Imagine That July Digi of the month challenge

 Imagine That July Digi of the month challenge
https://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/2021/07/july-dotm-challenge-we-3-mice.html

Each month Imagine That gives a free digi set to join the digi of the month challenge and if you make a project and join the challenge you will receive the free digi again next month.

If you didn't join in last month you can buy this month's digi set at a special price until the end of the month We Three Mice


I still can't see very well so I have used the coloured digi stamp.  I printed the digi tamp and sentiment onto white card and painted the background with Twinkling H2O watercolour paints. 
Stamped stars 

 I would also like to add my card to the following:
