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.

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - anything with a critter

2 Crafty Critter Crazies - anything with a critter

Our sponsor this month is Fabrika Fantasy

In March NanaConnie invited me to be on the design team for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge starting today (1 May).  I was going to say no as I have been struggling to keep up but decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did.  I received so many encouraging welcome messages from the rest of the design team.

This is my first design team card.    I am still having eye problems so I have used a coloured image that I have had for a long time

I have used We are 3 paper from Spring Butterflies too paper set and Leafy Green paper from We are 3 Birthday Bouquet paper set  and We are 3 paper from Back to Basics paper set
We are 3 Sentiment from Happiness sentiment set
Added 2 extra butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
Punched border from Scrap Graphics.
Fabrica Fantasy coloured digi stamp Summer Kitten (This image is in the digi club

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

I followed sketch 454 on Try Stampin' or not on Tuesday so I would like to add my card to that challenge.

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

A playful happy kitty is always just the thing, lol. Love this cheery Spring-y card! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!

What a sweet card, Margaret! Great combo of patterned papers, and I love your take on the sketch. I smiled when I read your comment about your warm welcome. We are very pleased to have you join us, my friend!!! 😊 I will be thinking of you as you work through this issues with your eyes. Please don't hesitate to ask if you want help with commenting to keep you off the computer more than necessary.

Congrats on joining the 2CCC DT, Margaret! Your card is adorable! Love how you took our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch to create it. The colors are beautiful, and the little yellow lace peeking out the bottom of the image is a perfect pickup of the yellow butterflies in your image. Thanks for joining us and sharing!!! -Donna
