About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on nine design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute and fairly simple.
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

4 Crafty Chicks challenge 235 sketch

Challenge 235 at 4 Crafty Chicks is a sketch
http://4craftychicks.blogspot.com.au/

I have used papers from Bugaboo "Papers Sweet" and "Bright Cupcakes" (changed two of the colours).  Printed Bugaboo digi stamp "Gus Bday" onto papers and coloured with markers.  Added sentiment from Bugaboo and typed 68.  Layered all onto blue and then white card.

I made this card for my husband.  His birthday is on Friday.  He is tall and thin while I am short and fat.   When he turned 60 he jokingly told our grand daughters that he wasn't going to get any older, he was going to start counting backwards.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges:
