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 and Rhymes - Trees

 Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme

Trees

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Our sponsor this month is Wink Wink 
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WinkWinkInk

I have used We are 3 paper from Trees paper set
We are 3 sentiment from Bird Songs sentiment set
Wink Wink digital stamp Porcupine and blue bird friends which I have coloured with markers

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!

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - Love Bug

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes 
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-song-rhymes-february-7-february-20

Be inspired by the song/rhyme 

Oh Lovely Lady Bug

Oh lovely ladybug,

take me to a place so fair

where I do not have a care...

 

In a meadow where

a rainbow bridges earth and sky,

and hills that reach high-

 

where there are bluebells and

cowslips everywhere.

 

In a dress like yours

that is red with black spots,

let me dance on flower tops;

 

And sip tea

in a lovely lea

with the ladybug queen

who has never been seen.

 

Let me be light

as a feather

and give me wings

so I can take flight-

to a land of ladybugs

filled with much delight.

Our sponsor this month is Wink Wink who has given us some digi stamps to use
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WinkWinkInk

I have used Wink Wink precoloured digi stamp Luv Bugs
Papers, coloured hearts and bugs from Digital Scrapbooking Studio Daisy Bug by LouCee Creations
We are 3 sentiment from Sending You sentiment set

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