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

12 months of Christmas 53 - anything Christmas with the twist Creature Feature - midway post

12 months of Christmas 53 - anything Christmas with the twist Creature Feature - midway post

Our sponsor this month is Babycakes Digis and designs by Sandra Caldwell
Sandra has given the design team some great digi stamps to use

I have used Digi by Sandra Caldwell 1754 Christmas Puppy  which I have coloured with chalks, Prismacolor pencils and gel pen.
Sentiment from We are 3 Christmas sentiment set
Paper from Lisa's 12 Days of Christmas 2018.

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

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, use any sort of ANIMAL whether wild or domestic as the focus of your card. 

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $9 gift certificate to the Babycakes Digis & Designs by Sandra Caldwell store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Whimsical Winter Woodland.
