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

Zuri Artsy-Craftsy challenge 11 - spring

Challenge 11 at Zuri Artsy-Craftsy is spring

I have coloured white card with distress stains.  Stamped grass and sun from Posh Impressions Stamp a Scene set.  Printed Zuri Artsy-Craftsy digital stamp Dalila onto white card.  Cut her out and coloured with mauve and purple distress markers and layered onto background.  Added punched butterfly, leaves and flowers and pearls.   Layered all onto purple card.   (I don't know why my scanner always makes my purple cards look blue)

Zuri kindly gives a free digi on her blog each Monday and the above stamps was a freebie in January

You can buy the lovely Zuri Artsy-Crafty stamps at
