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.

  5. Margaret, Happy New year. What a beautiful card you have made here which fits perfectly the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month of “add some flowers and some ribbon”. Even more FANTASTIC is that you have used one of Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps. I've used this "Peony" image for my inspiration post for week 3. It is stunning.
