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.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

Make it Shine

It is time for a new challenge at Creative Fingers.  This week the theme is "make it shine".

This week we are sponsored by 

Lacy Sunshine

Heather kindly gave all our design team members an image to work with, so go over and see the lovely cards made by the design team and join the challenge.

This is the card I made for the design team
I have torn a piece of mauve card, sponged the edges and layered onto purple card.  Printed out Lacey Sunshine Stamp "Coco La Belle" by Heather Valentine onto white card, coloured with markers and chalks, layered onto purple card and then onto the mauve card.  Printed out the sentiment from Create With TLC, layered onto purple card and then onto the mauve card.

Added rhinestone strip down the side, rhinestone circle around the mirror and purple rhinestone flowers (the colour of the flowers didn't scan correctly). 

I would also like to add this card to Through the Purple Haze challenge - Bling it up

Oh GrannyM, scared me a little bit thinking you wasnt going to join us this week @ TTPH. Love the inking round the edges. And the image is fabulous along with the sentiment. I'm definitely not having a runway day today!
Thanks for joining us again.
