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

Coloured digi stamp with markers and glitter gel pens.

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team.    Also vote on which paper you would like to receive this month.

As mentioned last month, we've made a few important changes for 2019 including the fact that: 
  • ALL entries linked up will now qualify for a chance to win the sponsored prize each month. 
  • Entries are now limited to a MAXIMUM of TEN per link up. 
  • Anyone following the optional twist will have their name thrown into a draw for a chance to win the monthly featured paper pack and you are no longer required to add FT after your name if you've followed the twist.
