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

Cute as a Button Facebook Group Progressive Freebie challenge

Francesca kindly gives a free digi stamp each month to join in the Cute as a Button Facebook group progressive freebie challenge.

If you make a project with the digi stamp and enter the challenge you can request the next month's for free.

I have made a clean and simple card.  I printed Cute as a Button digi Christmas portrait onto white card and coloured with markers and gel pens.
Added sentiment from We are 3 Happy Christmas sentiment set.

I hope you will also go over to the challenge blog
 and join in the  challenge
