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

Imagine That May digi of the month challenge

Imagine That  May digi of the month challenge
https://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/2021/05/may-digi-of-month-challenge.html

Each month Imagine That gives free digis for us to join the digi of the month challenge

For May we received the set Go Fly a Kite

I have had to use the coloured images as I still can't see out my right eye and everything is blurred.   The eye operation on 30 April brought the glaucoma pressure down from 30 (normal is 12) but when I had my 3rd post operative appointment with the specialist on Thursday the pressure was still down at 4 which he said means it is draining too fast.  I see him next on 11 June and he said if the pressure hasn't gone up he will take blood from my arm and inject it into my eye.   I hope I don't have to have that done.

 


I have used Imagine That papers from Love Lifts You and Woodlands paper set
Three of the coloured digi stamps and one of the sentiment from Go Fly a Kite set

If you haven't already joined in you can purchase Go Fly a Kite at a special price till the end of the month, make a project and enter the challenge then next month you will receive the free image.

I would also like to add my card to the following:

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - The world cup: Soccer

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-may-30-june-12-challenge

Our sponsor for June is KLM Designs
https://klmdigitaldesign.com/shop/ols/categories/digital-stamps 

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

The World Cup

The world's abuzz with soccer
Though I couldn't give a hoot.
I wouldn't even have a clue
For which team I should root.
The bars are packed with rousing fans;
I don't begrudge their cheers,
But I prefer a tennis match
To savor with my beers.
I'd also watch the Yankees play
'Cause baseball's what I know,
Though baseball-haters claim the game's
Inordinately slow.
So while the teams do battle
With the World Cup as the prize,
I'll find a book or other show
To occupy my eyes.

Sunday Songs and Rhymes - The frog

Ourlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-may-2-may-15th-challenge

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.
