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 - June 30 to July 13 - Summer Holiday

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes June 30 to July 13

Find inspiration in the song

by Cliff Richard 
We're all going on a summer holiday
No more working for a week or two
Fun and laughter on our summer holiday
No more worries for me or you,
For a week or two

We're going where the sun shines brightly
We're going where the sea is blue
We've all seen it on the movies
Now let's see if it's true

I have printed LeAnn's World 101 digi stamp Byron Surf'n onto white card and coloured with chalks and Prismacolor pencils. (I was lucky to win this digi stamp at Cute n Crafty Christmas challenge)
Drew sun and stamped seagulls

Adorable image and like the soft chalk coloring...cute and fun card. However, Thing 1 has asked you to use dry and/or heat embossing on your project and thus does not meet our requirement for this challenge, but thank you for sharing your artwork with us.
