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. family:";">http://faeryink.com/product/granmargaret-fairy-digital-stamp/

 Outlawz Monday Greetings - add some glitter + a greeting
https://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/monday-greetings/forum/topics/monday-greetings-challenge-january-31st-to-february-13th-2022-add

Our sponsor is Moonflower Digi Stamps who gave us lovey stamps to use
https://www.etsy.com/shop/MoonFlowerDigistamps


When I was looking for an embossing folder to use I found some cards I had embossed ages ago  but not used so decided to use this card which had been dry embossed with a Happy birthday folder.
I used some glossy accents to highlight the word Happy and added some rhinestones.
Printed Moonflower digi stamp Ashlee Butterfly Wings Faerie onto white card, cut out and coloured with markers and glitter gel pens and layered onto the embossed card.  Added rhinestones and glitter.  Also added glitter around her.  (Her dress is a pretty purple but it looks blue in the scan.) 

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:

I printed Morgan Fitzsimons digi stamp winter 6 large and coloured it with chalks and markers.
I then scanned it and reduced it down to fit on my card.
Layered it onto papers from Digital Scrapbooking Quilting Bee collection by Aimee Harrison
Added buttons from the same collection.
Added ribbon from Scrap Graphics
We are 3 sentiment from Special birthday sentiment set

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