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 - Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - May 5 to May 18

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay (artist:  Otis Redding)
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide, roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay

I have used papers, precoloured digi stamp and elements from Polkadoodles Winnie & Rocco Starfish & Sandcastles VIP bundle CD
Sentiment from We are 3 Special birthday sentiment set

I hope you will go over and see the lovely work by the design team.  (The challenge is no longer clean and simple you can use anything that fits the theme.)

I would like to add my card to the following:

Aud Sentiments 226 - feminine + a sentiment

CD Sunday 9 - anything goes using something from a CD

Classic Design Team open challenge for May #4 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Cute Card Thursday 580 - anything goes
