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

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Sleigh Bells

Sunday Songs and Rhymes 15 December - 28 December
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-and-rhymes-15-december-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Sleigh-Bells
Evaleen Stein


Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle!
  Happy winter-time!
Baby's eyes a-twinkle,
  Hear the sleigh-bells chime!

Each one rings a merry
  Ting-a-ling-a-ling!
For a sleigh-bell fairy
  Hides inside to sing.

See them quake and quiver,
  Up and downward tossed,
Seems as if they shiver
  In the nipping frost!

Shiver into laughter,
  Jolly little elves!
Till we laugh thereafter,
  Merry as themselves!
