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

Digi Stamps 4 Joy monthly Christmas card challenge

Each month Digi Stamps 4 Joy kindly gives us a free image to us and if we make a card for the challenge we receive the next month's image for free.  You still have a few days to join if you haven't joined already.

I have painted the left tag with a sparkly paint and used glitter pen on the snowflakes (though it doesn't show up in the scan)  Stamped Hero Arts Happy Christmas and added liquid pearls.  On the second tag have coloured with markers and added glitter to the tree and the star.  Layered tree tag onto paper from Bo Bunny Mistletoe collection 6x6 pad.  Layered blue tag on top.  Added brad and paper lace.

I usually use eyelets on tags but my friend has borrowed my cropadile.

You can also buy these tags at Digi Stamps 4 Joy shop  (MP363 Christmas tags 2)
