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

Faery Ink Facebook challenge - Shimmer Sparkle Shine

The Faery Ink Facebook group challenge is Shimmer Sparkle Shine

I can't see properly to colour today so I have used the precoloured Faery Ink stamp "Granmargaret Fairy".    I am the only one who has the precoloured version as Amanda made this especially for me, (plus my blog header), when I won the first Faery Ink blog challenge.

You can buy the black and white version for you to colour at

I have printed her onto a purple hexagon and cut out and layered onto a pink card which I embossed with hexagon embossing folder.  Stamped best wishes and punched out with hexagon punch and layered onto purple card punched out with hexagon punch.
Punched some more hexagons from butterfly paper and purple glitter card.
Added rhinestone butterfly and lots of other rhinestones

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Butterfly challenge 25 - butterflies plus H for hexagons

Get Creative challenge 9 - must have embossing

Inspiration Destination 22 - anything goes

I love your interpretation of my challenge. How honoured to have a Digi stamp made especially for you. Gorgeous colours and love that embossing folder and how you have put the butterflies into the spaces. Thankyou for fluttering by and being the 1st entrant of my Butterfly challenge #25. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Margaret I notice that the link for Inpsiration Destination is also pointing to my challenge instead of to theirs.
Hugs Mrs A.
