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:";">

Margaret, you did a great combination of papers and images to create your New Year's card! A very vintage feel, and a great interpretation of our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch!!! -Donna

Ooo, Margaret, I see this image as quite edgy, but your paper choice for her has given her a wonderful vintage feel. Absolutely gorgeous! Great design too! Happy New Year to you Margaret!
