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

Drawing with Milly

My second grand daughter has started a 2 year graphic design course this year.  She has a 2-1/2 hour train trip each way to university.  At the moment she is going 3 days each week.

Yesterday she started a Patreon account where people can support her drawings
You can support her for as little as $1 per month.  She has six different support amounts

This is what she has written on her page
Hi I’m emily or milly
im a student at Sae qantm and I’m learning graphic design
im an Australian artist starting out and wanting to share my art with the world 
hope to see many beautiful faces here on my page 😸
thank you so much for all the support 
talk to you all soon, milly

I have just made this card and used one of Emily's older drawings, she is drawing new drawings for her supporters.
Layered Emily's drawing onto 4 papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs Crazy Cat Lady bundle
Added sentiment from the same bundle.

I have used some of her other drawings on my blog recently

I followed sketch 356 and theme at Try Stamping or not on Tuesday - sketch + polka dots so I would like to add my card to that challenge.
I rotated the sketch to the right.

I would also like to my card to the following:

Always Fun 45 - valentine

Animal Friends 59 - Stripes and/or dots + an animal

Creative Craft Cottage 104 - Love is all around

Cute Card Thursday 516 - Love

Eclectic Ellapu - anything goes

QKR Stampede 282 - anything goes

Show us your pussies cats challenge 27 - Furrything goes/love

The Corrosive challenge 2 - anything goes

The Sketchy challenge 136 - anything goes

Through the craftroom Door - anything goes

I have used some of Emily's other drawings on my blog recently
