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

Gecko Galz challenge of the day 35 - to Mom
http://geckogalzscrapbooking.blogspot.com/p/challenge-of-day.html

My mother went to heaven in 2007 in the middle of my radiotherapy treatment so I don't have a mum to make a card for.  So I have made a card I can send to any mother.

I have used paper from Gecko Galz Heart to Heart mini digital paper pack
Coloured picture from the collage sheet I received for joining challenge 34 (every day you join in you receive a free collage sheet)
Banner and flowers from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Candles and cake collection by LouCee Creations

I followed sketch 550 at Tuesday Morning Sketches so I would like to add my card to that challenge
