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.

Hiya, Margaret! How clever to enlarge and colour this sweet image and then reduce it down. Your computer-fu is much more skilful than mine lol! I hope your eyesight is improving now.

Oh - and thanks for joining in at Dream Valley!

love Mags B x
