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 Progressive Freebie challenge

Each month a different designer gives a free digi stamp for us to use for the Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge.

This month we received the digi stamp Piggy Back from All Dressed Up

If you haven't already joined in you can go in and join the challenge and send an email requesting the image, make a project and then next month you will receive the free image.

I printed out the All Dressed Up digi stamp Piggy Back large, coloured it with markers then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.
I layered it onto We are 3 paper from Best of Autumn paper set
Added We are 3 sentiment from Friendship sentiment set

I followed sketch 494 at Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday
I didn't use the bleaching technique as I can't cope with the smell of bleach.

I would also like to add my card to the following

A Perfect Time to Craft Open challenge for February #2 - anything goes

Classic Design challenge challenge February #2 - anything goes

Crafty Animals - anything with an animal (my card has a bear)

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

Try it on Tuesday - Oh so Cute

Margaret, what a smart trick to color the enlarged image, then scan and reduce it down! That way you were able to include all kinds of nice details! I like your sentiment and how you placed it with regard to the image, too! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Don't keep yourself from trying the bleach technique. These days they make all kinds of nice smelling bleach,,, and it only takes a tiny bit to create the effect. -Donna
