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

Sunday Songs and Rhymes - The frog

Ourlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Our sponsor for the month of May is Sherry West Art

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

The Frog

Be kind and tender to the Frog,
   And do not call him names,
As ‘Slimy skin,’ or ‘Polly-wog,’
   Or likewise ‘Ugly James,’
Or ‘Gape-a-grin,’ or ‘Toad-gone-wrong,’   
   Or ‘Billy Bandy-knees’:
The Frog is justly sensitive
   To epithets like these.
No animal will more repay
   A treatment kind and fair;
At least so lonely people say
Who keep a frog (and, by the way,   
They are extremely rare).



I have used Sherry West digital stamp Girl with frog and coloured with chalks and markers
We are 3 sentiment from Birthday Greetings sentiment set

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

This is my second guest designer card for April Outlawz Tuesday colour challenge
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/tuesday-color/forum/topics/colour-challenge-20-april-3-may

Blue, green and yellow with die cuts.  I used Beccys free silhouette digi stamp which I recoloured green.    The embossed yellow card is a bright yellow but the scanner didn't scan it correctly.  The background behind the stamp and yellow circle is blue and green inks onto block and spritzed with water then the card placed over it.   I added dragonfly and buttons die cuts.

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Daisies

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-song-rhyme-april-18-may-1-2021

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

Daisy Time

See, the grass is full of stars,
Fallen in their brightness;
Hearts they have of shining gold,
Rays of shining whiteness.
Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies' dance
All the meadow over.
Blow, O blow, you happy winds,
Singing summer's praises,
Up the field and down the field
A-dancing with the daisies.


I have used We are 3 papers from Springtime and Farm Life paper sets
Patties Creations digital stamp Gerber Daisy in vase which I coloured with chalks and markers
Typed sentiment in word art
Added extra daisies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
