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

We are 3 sentiment from Spring sentiment set
Doily from Digital Scrapbooking Studio

Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes - Butterfly

 Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-challenge-march-21-april-3

Be inspired by the The Butterfly Song (If I Were a Butterfly) Psalty & Ernie Rettino

If I were a butterfly
I'd thank you, Lord, for giving me wings
And if I were a robin in a tree
I'd thank you, Lord, that I could sing
And if I were a fish in the sea
I'd wiggle my tail, and I'd giggle with glee
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me
'Cause you gave me a heart
And you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus
And you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me me
If I were an elephant
I'd thank you, Lord, by raising my trunk
And if I were a kangaroo
I'd just hop right up to you
And if I were an octopus
I'd thank you, Lord, for my good looks
But I'd just thank you Father for making me me

If you did not play last month, you can still join in the fun & start receiving FREE DIGIS by purchasing this DOTM in the shop at a discount all month long here.

This is the second card I made using this lovely cute set.  This time I used the papers from the set



My hands and eyes are really bad today so I have made a digital card using the precoloured images, one of the sentiments and the four papers from the Honey Bear set
Ric Rac is from E-Scape and Scrap.

I have lots of birthday cards to make for bear lover friends so this set was perfect.

I hope you will go over and join in the challenge.
