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


Post Pals cards for sick children

Post Pals - Putting a Smile on Childrens Faces

Sunday, 6 April 2014


Welcome to the last day of the Spring has Spring Blog Hop sponsored by Daydream Designs.  Start the day at Diane's blog

On this card I have used paper from Garden Delights Papers, Little flower patch, butterfly and bees from Doodle Garden colour set, Spade and Watering can from Garden Accessories set,  sentiment from Mothers Garden of Wishes set.  All from Daydream designs. 

Thank you to Diane who edited my scans to make my cards clearer.

Remember to leave a message on each blog for the chance to win some of Diane's digital stamp sets.  Go back to her blog at the end and leave a message that you have left a message on each blog.    You only have to leave one message on each blog to be in the draw for the prizes.

Diane has a different free digi on her blog for each day of the hop.  They will only be there for the time of the hop and will be gone tomorrow.  Also Katlyn has a different freebie each day.   

You should have come here from Karen's blog but if not go back to Diane's blog and start from there.  Not everyone is doing a third day but most are.  There are different cards posted each day.   Some overseas members will not be up yet so check them again later
