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

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 482 - Inspired by a song or carol
http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/

I was looking for some vellum paper for another card in a box and found some images and cards  I had printed out ages ago but never coloured and I found this card which was perfect for this challenge.  I hadn't used it because it was crooked, so I cut off the card front to use.



Unfortunately it was so long ago I can't remember where the paper came from.  If anyone knows please tell me in the comments.
The Merry Christmas song sentiment is from Create with TLC.
I coloured the Art by Miran digi stamp Pop Stars Suzie 119 with markers and Gel pen
Layered all onto white card.

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