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

LeAnn's World 101 - Facebook Progressive challenge

 Each month LeAnn gives a free digi to join the facebook group progressive freebie challenge.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1836531013324656

I have been joining in for a long time but I missed joining in last month so I had to buy the stamp this month.


I can't see very well so I printed out LeAnn's world digi stamp Shopping Day onto white card, coloured it with markers, then scanned and reduced it down to fit on my card.
I layered it onto We are 3 papers from Bokeh Blends paper set
Added borders and sentiment from Digital Scrapbooking Shopaholic collection by Aimee Harrison and JB Studio

I followed the Outlawz Sketch - I rotated the sketch (I was lucky my card was picked as the showcased card last challenge)
