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

I have made this card specially for a friend who likes purple.

Beccy's Place month of holiday cards Day 22 - foliage stamps

Day 22 at Beccy's Place month of holiday cards is use foliage stamps to make a wreath and Beccy has given us a tutorial using a small leaf stamp.
http://beccysplace.blogspot.com.au/


My card is nothing like the lovely one Beccy made.  It has been so hot here in Sydney today and it is still hot in our house at 11.20 pm tonight.   It has been too hot to think straight.  I am normally fuzzy headed but worse today.  Also very tired after a family party yesterday.    I couldn't think whether I had a leaf stamp so I have used the holly leaf stamp and the bow from Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament clear stamp set which was a freebie with Australian Simple Cards magazine No 61.   I have only used two green inks instead of three.  Added ribbon, rhinestones and stars and layered all onto red card.  Happy Christmas stamp from Hero Arts.

I have missed doing No 21 so I will have to go back and do that one.
