About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in 2012 so I could join Challenges. At present I am on seven 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

Karleigh Sue challenge - anything but a card


The challenge at Karleigh Sue this month is anything but a card
http://karleighsuechallenge.blogspot.com.au/

I have printed out a tag from Luna Girl and cut it out.  Printed out the sentiment from Karleigh Sue, coloured edges with marker and layered onto tag.  Printed Karleigh Sue digital stamp Stop to Smell the flowers onto white card, cut her out, coloured her with markers and layered on top.  Added flowers and dragonfly brads.  Punched hole and added eyelet.  Layered onto yellow card.  Added ribbon.  I wanted to add my gold thread but I couldn't find it.  I am always loosing things.

I hope you will go over to the Karleigh Sue blog and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge, you don't have to use a Karleigh Sue stamp but we like it when you do.
