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 & Rhymes 23 August - 5 Sept - Animal fair

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 23 August - 5 September

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:
The Animal Fair
(American folk song by American sailors in the 19th century)

We went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there.
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his golden hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk,
And slid down the elephant's trunk.
The elephant sneezed - Achoo!
And fell on her knees,
And what became of the monkey;
Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey?

I have used background from My Memories Holidays in Africa bundle
Pre coloured elements and from My Memories Holidays in Africa bundle and At the Zoo bundle
Sentiment from At the Zoo bundle

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

I would like to add my card to the following:

Animal Friends 89 - hippopotamus or rhinoceros (I have a rhinoceros on my card)
