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

This is my card I made for the blog and facebook challenges

I have used papers from We are 3 Halloween night paper set.  (My scanner hasn't scanned the colour of the second paper correctly - it is purple not blue)
Sentiment from We are 3 Halloween sentiment set
Ching-Chou Kuik greyscale digi stamp The Perfect Pumpkin (which comes in a set of two stamps).
I coloured the stamp with chalks and Prismacolor pencils.
