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

More Mixed Media June challenge - anything goes/purple use a little or a lot

More Mixed Media June challenge - anything goes/purple use a little or a lot

I  have made a journal page and used light purple card, stencil, Dusty concord distress ink, media white gesso paste, purple iridescent creative medium, piece of packing material from a parcel sprayed with dylusions funky fuchia ink spray, dragon fly ribbon, spritzed seedless preserves distress marker, punched flowers, rhinestones,  Picture and sentiments from facebook.
Stamp is from a sheet of nine clear stamps that I won in a challenge ages ago and hadn't used yet
Anime Manga girls and neko from Flonz Craft
You can't see the stamp very well as I painted over it with Royal Velvet Glitter Glam.
The ribbon and punched flowers are purple but they look blue in the scan.

The sentiment next to Gran says

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join the challenge.
