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

Christmas card club - white on white with a smidgen of colour.

It was Christine's turn to pick the theme for this fortnight's challenge and she picked white on white but if not easy feel free to add a smidgen of colour
I find white on white hard so mine has a bit more colour
I have used paper and precoloured elements from E-Scape and Scrap Snow Flurries and Joy of Christmas.

If you would like to see the cards by the other members of the Christmas card club their names are listed down the side of my blog.

I would like to add my card to the following:

Outlawz Sunday Songs and rhymes - Five little speckled frogs

I was delighted to be invited to be a guest designer again for the Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes.
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/songs-and-rhymes-july-8-2018

The song this week is Five little speckled frogs


I have used papers and precoloured elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio and My Memories.
Typed sentiment

I hope you go over and join in the challenge.

Five little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious grubs
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs.
