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

Christmas Card club 20 - gifts ribbons and bows

I hate this new blogger.    I started this post on 19 Sept and made a mistake when trying to schedule the post and it scheduled for 5 September.   It would not let me reschedule it so I Just deleted everything so it now shows as a blank post for that day.

It was Zoe's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas card club this fortnight and she picked gifts, ribbons and bows

I have used We are 3 papers from Christmas Fun and Vintage Christmas paper sets
Hetty Clare precoloured digi stamp Christmas Elf
Ribbon and brads from Digital Scrapbooking Studio

If you would like to see the cards by the other members of the Christmas Card club their blogs are listed down the side of my blog

I followed sketch 191 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 so I would like to add my card to that challenge

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

A Perfect Time to Craft open challenge for September #9 -2020 - anything goes

Aud Sentiments 260 - anything goes + sentiment (sentiment is on my paper)

Classic Design challenge August #9 2020 - anything goes

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly pattern paper challenge - anything with pattern paper

Make my Monday 131 - Christmas in September

Hi Margaret, lovely card and what a delightful image that is! I agree, this new blogger is taking some getting used to- why didn't they release the changes gradually, to give people a chance to get their heads around the new stuff a little at a time? Would have been much easier! Hugs, Shaz X

I'm not keen on the new blogger either but getting there slowly. Like your card with the cute elf and fits the sketch as well as our challenge perfectly. Zoe x

She is such a cutie Margaret. Blogger is certainly not as straightforward as it was, I suppose we will all just get used to it and then it will change again.
