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 - Frosty the Snowman

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-november-17-december-7-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe
And a button nose and
Two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the snowman
Is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around



I have used six papers from We are 3 Christmas Magic paper set
Sentiment from We are 3 Happy Christmas
We are 3 precoloured digi stamp Hipster Snowman
Scalloped border from Pininkie

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 464 - use some glitter

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 464 - anything Christmas with optional theme use some glitter
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/


I use old stamps I have had for a long time.
I stamped stars onto gloss card with versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
Then brayered over with Kaleidacolor raised rainbow dye inkpad fruitcake which I have also had for a long time.
Stamped Stamp It stamp on top.  (Stamp is not very clear, that is why I use mostly digital stamps now as they are easier on my sore hands)
Added lots of glitter.
Layered all onto red card and added more glitter.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

More Mixed Media - anything mixed media with optional black

More Mixed Media - anything mixed media with optional black - a little or a lot
http://moremixedmediachallenge.blogspot.com/


I have used a star stencil to draw stars with a white gel pen onto black card.  (I tried using white paint but made too much of a mess so started again and used the white gel pen)
Added star stickers.
Made a bokeh background on a piece of gloss card with distress stamp pads and white brilliance ink pad and stamped Christmas stamps with black brilliance ink. Layered onto black card.
Layered all onto dark blue card.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following:

Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes - Over the River and Through the Woods

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - November 3 - 16
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-november-3-november-16-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Over the River and Through the Woods

Over the river and through the woods,
To grandmother's house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Through (the) white and drifted snow!
Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.
Over the river and through the woods,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bells ring, "Ting-a-ling-ling!"
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!
Over the river and through the woods,
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go extremely slow 
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the woods,
Now Grandmother's cap I spy!

Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!





I have used precoloured digi stamp and sentiment from Jan's Digi Stamps 3070J Over the River
Paper, trees and animal from Digital Scrapbooking Studio In the Woods by Connie Prince

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
