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

There is an event at Kit and Clowder Facebook group which is being sponsored by Julia Spiri who is giving a lovely free image to all the members of the group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/kitandclowder/
Some of the Julia Spiri design team have made a card with the image that is being given away.

I have coloured the Julia Spiri digi stamp Spring Fairy with Prismacolor pencils and glitter pen.
Used paper and elements from Scrappers Delight Fairy Topia set.

Alyce Keegan also runs lots of great colouring classes on line.  (Unfortunatly I have not been able to join in any.)

Fun Day Friday 136 - Mothers Day

Challenge 136 at Fun Day Friday this week is Mothers Day
http://jwscrapshack.blogspot.com.au/
and our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps who has given us some lovely digi stamps to use.

Crafting with Dragonflies design team call

There is a design team call at Crafting with Dragonflies
http://crafting-with-dragonflies.blogspot.com.au/
The blog is sponsor free (at the moment) so there are no rewards.
I like the idea of being able to use anything you want from your own supplies on your projects.
We have to make a card and post to the blog.  I have made 3 cards today that I haven't shared anywhere else so I thought I would give it a try.



Card one uses precoloured digi stamp from Whoopsi Daisy Hip Hip Hooray its Daisy May CD
Papers and elements from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
Typed sentiment.

Card 2 uses precoloured images from Gecko Galz beautiful music digital collage set,
Paper from words and music paper set.  Music notes from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

Card 3 uses paper from Scrappers Delight Fairy Topia set
Fairy silhouette and sentiment which were freebies last year from Create with TLC

I will be happy if I am picked to be on the design team, but I understand if there are others more qualified.
