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.

Imagine That September challenge use any Imagine That digi

Each month Kris kindly gives us a free stamp set to use in her challenge and if we make a card we receive the next month's set for free.
This month she has an open challenge to use any Imagine That digi.  I had to make a card for a friend who likes bears so have used a different set to what I received from Kris this month.

I have layered coloured image from Imagine That "Honey and Boo Balloons" onto paper from Imagine That Birthday Bubbles paper set 1.  Added sentiment from "Honey and Boo Balloons" set.  Layered all onto blue and then white card.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly patterned paper challenge

Suzy Bee's Bloomin challenge 45 anything goes


  1. Hi Margaret, I love that background paper and the cute image.
    I agree about the price of Copics here in Aus and the fact that many dry out quickly despite them being guaranteed for 3 years. Unfortunately I invested a lot of money in them as I love my stamps and colouring in. I am now in my second childhood!!!
