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

Julia Spiri challenge 24 - boxes (or configuration boxes) - starts on 6 September

I am so sorry everyone I made a mistake and posted this on 2 September but the challenge doesn't start until 6 September.  (I am so fuzzy headed).

Challenge 24 at Julia Spiri is boxes or configuration boxes

I have made a small box

Top of box before it was stuck together

Close up of sentiment

I made the box out of kraft card and coloured the lid with Dusty Concord Distress stain
For the top of the lid of the box I have used paper from Lozzy's mixed media papers (I lightened the paper so the flowers showed better)

For two of the sides I printed out roses from Julia Spiri's watercolour flowers roses clip art
(I changed the colour of the flowers)
cut out the roses and added them to punched leaves.  Added washi tape
For the other two sides I added Julia Spiri precoloured digi stamps Rose and Ballerina
plus larger roses and washi tape.

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

I would like to add this card to the following:

Penny's challenge 293 - anything goes
