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.

My card for Sunny Challenges No SC05612

This is my card for Sunny Challenges No SC05612
We had to make a card 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm) to the following sketch
I made the paper from a picture of asters on the internet (Aster is the birthday flower for September)
Added washi tape which does not show up too well in the scan.
Used Stampin Up punch and stamps.


  1. How clever to make your own background paper Margaret. They look ready to be picked.... Love the decorative border around your card too. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations

  2. Margaret, your creation is beautiful and I love the way you have made your own background paper too. Such a pretty pretty card! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

  3. Your card is so pretty. I love the beautiful background paper and that gorgeous flower from Reason to Smile. Thanks for joining us at Sunny Challenges and Creations.

  4. Very clever, Margaret! The stamped flower complements the background paper perfectly. Such pretty colours too. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations.
