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

Gerda Steiner progressive freebie challenge

Each month Gerda Steiner kindly gives a free digi stamp to join in the challenge.

Update 9/5/2018 - Unfortunately Gerda won't be able to continue the monthly freebie challenge.  See copy of her email at the end of this post.

I have used papers from We are 3 Celebrate paper pack
Added triangles and oval.
Gerda Steiner digital stamp GSD642 Bear with sign which I coloured with markers
Added flower from E-Scape and Scrap Little pink garden

I followed sketch 451 at Tuesday morning sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge.

I would also like to add my card to the following:

Artistic Inspirations 199 - anything goes

2 Crafty Critter Crazies 14 - anything goes with a critter

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends 80 - anything goes

Love to Craft 22 - anything goes

Pennys Paper Crafty 378 - anything goes

Received from Gerda 9 May 2018.

Hello again and some sad news 😞,

You may have heard about the new General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), that comes into effect May 25, 2018.
We had to spend some time to learn more about this to make sure that our website will comply with the new EU-General Data Protection Regulation.
Even though this is a European law it does affect all of us.
Any processing of personal data will fall into the GDPR protected category and therefore we won't be able to continue our monthly progressive challenge as this requires us to access Inlinkz data in order to send you the challenge image for the following month.
Inlinkz has their consent in place but that doesn't give us the right to use the email addresses associated with the uploads. Therefore we can't send out a new image every month to those that played along.

Furthermore, it looks like that we'll have to delete all previous Monthly Challenge entries as well.
I am so very sorry about this. We really didn't expect this to be such a big of a deal and you've probably already been creating with the latest digital stamp. Anyhow, we won't be able to finish this months Challenge as the new law will take place on May 25th, 2018. (I still hope that you will enjoy creating with him. )

However, right now it looks like that the Share your Design Challenge can stay in place as those data are collected by the Inlinkz host and not by us.

Thank you so much for all your support throughout those years we had the Progressive Challenge. We've had so many wonderful submissions, kind comments and endless support from you.

Thank you, Thank you!

I know these are not the best news but I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your day.
