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 cards link up 56 midway post- anything goes with the option twist sparkle, glitter and bling

12 months of Christmas cards link up 56 midway post - anything goes with optional twist sparkle, glitter and bling

our extra sponsor this month is Oddball Art Co who has given us some great Christmas digi stamps to use.

I used Digi Stamp Rudolph Cute Reindeer Christmas Image No 485 which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils and glitter gel pens
Paper from Lisa's Snowy Bokeh Trees and Touch of Xmas Glitz & Gloss paper collections
Brad from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Added rhinestones

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

Don't forget to also vote for your favourite paper - Everyone who enters 2 or more cards will receive the paper that has the most votes.  One random winner who follows the twist will win the whole set.
