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 25 August - 7 September - Walking the Dog

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 25 August - 7 September

be inspired by the song

Walking the dog
By Rufus Thomas
Baby's back, dressed in black,
Silver buttons all down her back
High, low, tipsy toe,
She broke a needle and she can't sew
Walkin' the dog,
Just walkin' the dog
If you don't know how to do it,
I'll show you how to walk the dog

I have used paper from We are 3 Magical Butterflies paper collection
A Day for Daisies digital stamp Walking Sadie which I have coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  (Unfortunately the shop is closed so you can no longer buy this stamp)
Added brads

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

I followed sketch 32 at Do-Al(l) Creatives so I would like to add my card to that challenge.

I would also like to add my card to the following:
