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 Lollipop Ladies January DT Call

This is my card for Lollipop Ladies January DT call

This was the inspiration picture 
I have used Tim Holtz distress stains on white card sponged edges with distress ink.  Stamp World "Whizz Bang" stamp coloured with pink, blue and green distress pens and stamped onto background.  Sentiment stamps from La La Land "New Year Marci" coloured with distress pens and stamped onto background.  Marci stamped onto white card and coloured with Copics, Tria markers and distress pens, cut out and attached to background.


  1. Gorgeous card Margaret! I love the fireworks idea in the background.

  2. Super cute! Love the distressing and the neat fussy cutting too. Goodluck with the DT call :)

  3. Love the fireworks Margaret! A great interpretation of the inspiration.
