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 - The world cup: Soccer

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

Our sponsor for June is KLM Designs 

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.

I have used Lozzy's paper from Kick and Catch paper set
We are 3 sentiment from Masculine sentiment set
Ribbon from Scrap Graphics
I printed KLM Designs digi stamp Soccer Gnome coloured it with chalks and markers then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.

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

I followed sketch 507 at Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday (I rotated the sketch)
