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.

Fairies and Butterflies

I made this birthday card today and I am going to enter it into two challenges

Robyn's Fetish Challenge No 153 - Fairies (I was lucky to be picked as one of the top 3 for challenge No 152)

and Paula's  new challenge blog where challenge 1 is Anything Goes

I have printed out Delicious Doodles digi stamps "Butterfly border" and "Fairy Fae" and coloured with Copic, distress and Tria Markers.  Printed out a second copy of butterfly border and coloured and cut out some of the butterflies and flowers and layered them over the top of the first image then attached all to 
pink card which I first embossed with Crafts-Too butterflies. 

I usually make a separate card for each challenge but I am running behind this week.  The tablets I am on for Fybromyalgia and arthritis are making me fuzzy headed so it takes longer to get going in the mornings and it takes longer to make my cards.


  1. A wonderful card Margaret. I love the image, the butterflies and the embossing x
