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

Digitally Sweet challenge 126 - colour challenge

Challenge 126 at Digitally Sweet this week is a colour challenge

and our sponsor this week is Sparkle N Sprinkle  who has kindly given the design team some images to use.  I didn't request an image as I wanted to use one I already had - "Ellie Dance Lessons" by Beccy Muir.  You can buy Beccy's digi stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle or  you can buy direct from Beccy.

I wanted some different ballet papers to use so I found another Etsy shop selling digi papers
AMBillustrations.  I recoloured them in Publisher to fit the colours for the challenge.
I used two of the papers from the ballerina paper set.  Added ric rac and bows from Betsy Rainbow
which I recoloured to fit the colour challenge.
Layered precoloured image and sentiment from Ellie Dance Lessons on top.

I hope you will go over to Digitally Sweet and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.
