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.

Sweet Pea Stamps challenge July 2013

The Sweet Pea Stamps challenge for July is Red, white and blue.
This is the card I made today
I have printed Sweet Pea digi stamp "Poinsettia fairy" onto white card and coloured her with blue and different shades of  red distress and Kaszazz alcohol markers.  Highlighted with red and blue gelly roll pens.  (You can't see the glitter in the scan) Layered her onto red card and then onto white card.  Added blue and white washi tape.  Punched flowers and coloured red and blue with Kaszazz markers and added blue rhinestones.


  1. Very pretty card! I love the paper you used and the image is gorgeous!

  2. A lovely card Margaret, the image is wonderful x

  3. A fabulous card Margaret, I love the image and the layout x

  4. Margaret, this is a beautiful card. I love to see images in different colours ie this one is normally red and green but works perfectly with blue, red and white. Thanks for entering the One Sweet Challenge, best wishes Kym xxx (Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team)

  5. Oh Margaret she is beautiful. I love your card. Thank you so much for joining us at One Sweet challenge.
