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.

I have used Streamers paper from We are 3 Balloon Magic paper set

Scrappers Delight digi stamp Honey Chef which I coloured with markers.
(I meant to leave the coat white but am so fuzzy headed I started using pink)

  1. Gorgeous card Margaret, the image is fabulous and I think colouring her coat pink is ok ( well she is a lady chef) and most girls love a little pink. Lovely background layout. Thank you for sharing with us at Daisy Chain and good luck in the draw. Jennifer DT member x
