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, 30 November 2014


There are new stamps released today at Digi Stamps 4 Joy shop
Go over to the blog and see the lovely cards made by the design team

Here is my card showing one of the new stamps and one of the older ones.

I have layered the new stamp RJ040 Christmas Baobab onto paper from Pininkie Christmas Black and White paper set.  I have recoloured the paper in publisher.  I have coloured Christmas Baobab with markers and the stars with glitter pen.  Have added precoloured Digi JL507c Misteri-Santa's secret.    Typed the sentiment.

I hope you will go over to the blog and to the store to see all the new stamps.

The theme for the Christmas club this fortnight is All I want for Christmas so I have used this theme for the sentiment so I can also use this card for the Christmas card club.
(I found out after posting this that the theme for the Christmas card club was changed but some of the others didn't know either.)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Love the card and am so glad that I wasn't the only one to have not noticed the change in theme, lol. I wrote my list out back in February and go by that list each time.
