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.

Sweat Pea Stampers blogspot challenge - For the children

I found another challenge site tonight Sweet Pea Stampers blogspot and their challenge is For the children.
I made this card tonight
I embossed green card with Butterflies embossing folder. I printed out Sweet Pea stamp "Flutter" by Karen Middleton and coloured her with markers and chalks, cut into an oval and layered over red oval, and layered onto green card.  Added flowers and brad.  Punched butterflies from white card and coloured with markers to match the stamp and attached them to green card.  Layered all onto pink card 


  1. Granmargaret, this is a gorgeous Karen Middleton image card you have made. I like the way you have combined the butterfly/flower embossing folder with those lovely die-cut butterflies. I have a little addiction for die-cut butterflies!!! Thanks for taking part in the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge this month of “for the children” and best of luck. We hope to see you back again very soon. Best wishes, Kym, Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team xxx

  2. Granmargaret - I love your card, and I am big fan of butterflies. Beautifully done card.
