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.

Card 3 for It's a Girl Thing Turner Syndrome Awareness 3rd Annual Blog hop and challenge

This is my 3rd card for It's a girl thing Turner Syndrome Awareness 3rd annual blog hop and challenge

I made this card to send to my third grand daughter for her birthday last Sunday.  She has been going to dance classes since she was tiny and now at 22 has decided to stop the classical ballet classes and just continue with the jazz classes.  She has also decided to try something new - Aerial Hoop Lyra classes and has done two classes so far which she enjoyed.   I decided to use The Paper Shelter coloured digi stamp from the Warm Feelings set as it looks like a girl sitting in a hoop.
I also used two We are papers from Miracles Happen paper set that Bonnie created especially for the Turner Syndrome challenge.
We are 3 coloured digi stamp Butterfly of Hope
We are 3 sentiment Miracles
and free sentiment from Word Art Wednesday challenge weeks 47-48

My grand daughter doesn't have Turner Syndrome (she is nearly 6ft tall) but she does have other medical problems.   She was a miracle baby because after my eldest daughter lost her first baby the doctors told her there would not be any more babies.  But God sent her miracle baby girl. (My youngest daughter has 3 girls)

I hope if you haven't already joined in you will go over and learn all about the Turner Syndrome and join in the blog hop and challenge.

Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born missing all or part of her second X chromosome leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,000 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!

I would like to add my card to the following:

Margaret, Such a trendy feminine creation with that lovely butterfly background paper. Thank you for sharing your glamorous card with the perfect sentiment for Turner Syndrome.

Fabulous card Margreet! Thanks for helping us spread the word about Turner Syndrome! How awesome that your granddaughter is a dancer. As young girls (started at age 3 & 4) my sister and I took dancing until we married ... then after having our families we went back to it as adults (together) until we became grandmothers. Many happy memories! Reading about your granddaughter dancing experiences brought many memories back to my mind. Thanks
