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.

Spring Card

I made this card today for the Sweat Pea May challenge - spring colours
I made the poppy background paper from a picture on google.  Printed Sweet Pea stamp "Field of Poppies" onto white card and coloured with Copic, Kaszazz and Distress Markers.  Sponged edges with distress ink and added lace ribbon from Craft Queen.  Layered onto poppy background which was then layered onto yellow card.  Cut some extra poppies from another piece of paper and layered on top.  Punched butterfly and stamped Stampin Up Happy Birthday.


  1. A brilliant card Margaret, the paper and the image are wonderful. I love the lace ribbon x

  2. Beautiful cards Margaret. Great idea on making your own backing papers.
