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 - Digi of the Month - June challenge

 Imagine That - Digi of the month challenge June
https://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/2021/06/june-dotm-challenge-lawn-ranger.html

Each month Imagine That gives a free digi set to join the Digi of the Month challenge.

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.


I printed the precoloured digi stamp and one of the sentiments from the Lawn Ranger set



and then I coloured the sky background with chalk and stamped clouds, butterflies and birds.

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

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes

 Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges3.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-and-rhymes-june-27th-july-10th

Our sponsor is Sheepski Designs
https://www.etsy.com/shop/SheepSkiDesigns

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

Warning
Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.



I still can't see very well so I printed  Sheepski digi stamp Emmy's Hat onto white card and coloured with chalks and markers, then scanned and reduced down to fit on my card. 
Added We are 3 papers from Watercolor Strokes and April Showers paper sets
We are 3 sentiment from You Know sentiment set

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

My Time to Craft Christmas challenge - favourite Christmas stamp

My time to Craft Christmas challenge - favourite Christmas stamp
https://mytimetocraftchristmas.blogspot.com/

My favourite Christmas stamp is a little Judikins 'Angel rubber stamp which I have had for a long time. 
I loved the stamp when I saw it on someone's card and it took me a long time to find it.
I have made two cards as you can't see the stamp very well on the first card.




Card 1:  I embossed green textured card with Crafts Too Christmas Tree frame embossing folder and sanded.  Stamped Angel and Happy Christmas with Versafine Clair ink and heat embossed with Wow embossing powder Opaque Bright White regular.

Card 2:  I embossed purple textured card with Creative Impressions Shimmering stars embossing folder.  Stamped Angel and Happy Christmas onto velum, embossed with Wow Embossing glitter Clear Hologram sparkle and attached to purple card with star brads.

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

 I would like to add my card to the following:

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes - By the beautiful sea

Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-rhymes-june-13-june-26-challenge

Our sponsor this month is KLM Digital Designs
https://www.etsy.com/shop/KatysCardEmporium

Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

By the beautiful sea:

Words by Harold Atteridge, Music by Harry Carroll

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea,
You and I you and I, oh! How happy we'll be,
When each wave comes a rolling in,
We will duck or swim, and we'll float and fool around the water.
Over and under, and then up for air,
Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?
I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,
Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea.



I have used four We are 3 papers from Oceania paper set
We are 3 sentiment from Mermaid Wishes sentiment set
Fish from Digital Scrapbooking Studio
KLM Designs digital stamp Fisherman Gnome 
My eyes are really bad so I printed the digi stamp large and 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.
