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

I am excited I  have 100 followers, I never thought this would happen when I started my blog.  I note that others give away a gift when they reach milestones so I am going to give a $10 gift voucher from Doodle Pantry https://doodlepantry.com/ who has lovely digital stamps.

Just add a comment to this post if you would like to go into the draw to win the voucher.

Thank you all for following me and thank you for all your comments.   I do read every one when I approve them.  I had to put moderation onto my blog as I was receiving too many spam messages.

I haven't done any craft today as I have been to the dentist this morning.  He was running late so I was late getting back home.   We arrived home just in time for Tony to go to work.

I hope to see many of you go into the draw.

Best wishes

Outlawz Creative Freebie Challenge finish 6 October

I thought I had added my card but have been so fuzzy headed this week, tonight found I hadn't
Each challenge we are given 2 free digis to make cards.  We need to make at least one card to get the next challenge digi's.
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/cfc
This is the first card I made
I embossed Violet card with butterflies and flowers which was a free embossing folder with Australian Only Cards.  Printed the first digi from Outlawz and coloured it with markers.  Layered onto green card, added butterfly brad and attached to violet card.  The scanner doesn't scan the colours properly, they look more blue in the scan.

I printed out the stamp for card 2 last week but haven't finished it yet.  Will finish it tomorrow.
