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

Christmas card club

It was Rita's turn to pick the theme for the Christmas Club this fortnight and she has picked the theme Mistletoe and wine.

Used 2 papers of Lisa Decosse's Christmas papers from 2014.
Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp JL700c Martinis cocktail
(You can only buy this now as a black and white image)
I googled mistletoe and wine and pictures of Cliff Richard's song Mistletoe and wine came up so I used two of those pictures.

If you would like to see the cards of the others in the Christmas Card club their names are down the left side of my blog.
