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 July 28 - August 10 - Four Seasons

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes July 28 - August 10
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-july-28-august-10-2019

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme: 

Four Seasons

The fields are rich with daffodils,
A coat of clover cloaks the hills,
And I must dance, and I must sing
To see the beauty of the spring.

The earth is warm, the sun's ablaze,
It is a time of carefree days;
And bees abuzz that chance to pass
May see me snoozing in the grass.

The leaves are yellow, red, and brown,
A shower sprinkles softly down;
The air is fragrant, crisp, and cool,
And once again I'm stuck in school.

The birds are gone, the world is white,
The winds are wild, they chill and bite;
The ground is thick with slush and sleet,
And I can barely feel my feet.

The last is done, the next is here,
The same as it is every year;
Spring -- then sunshine ' autumn ' snow,
That is how each year must go.

This time I have done Winter season.   It is winter now in Australia.
I have used papers from We are 3 Winter Sunshine paper collection 
Sentiment from We are 3 Christmas sentiment set
Di's Digital stamps coloured digi stamp Woolly Ted (you can also buy this stamp as a black and white digi)

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

July Morning by Uriah Heep
There I was on a July morning
Looking for love
With the strength
Of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun
At the sound
Of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm
And the night behind me
And a road of my own
With the day came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
La la la la


I have used paper from We are 3 Vintage Bird paper collection
Sentiment from We are 3 Bird songs sentiment set
Sun from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Beach Ball Mega kit
