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 - Sleigh Bells

Sunday Songs and Rhymes 15 December - 28 December

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
Evaleen Stein

Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle!
  Happy winter-time!
Baby's eyes a-twinkle,
  Hear the sleigh-bells chime!

Each one rings a merry
For a sleigh-bell fairy
  Hides inside to sing.

See them quake and quiver,
  Up and downward tossed,
Seems as if they shiver
  In the nipping frost!

Shiver into laughter,
  Jolly little elves!
Till we laugh thereafter,
  Merry as themselves!

17/12/19 - I just noticed that something has gone wrong with my post and what I used doesn't show.  I will fix it up now.

I have used background paper from E-Scape and Scrap Festive Frolics
Extra trees from Jan's digis 273J Tree scene and Jan's Digis 744J Sleigh Ride

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

I would like to add my card to the following:
