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 managed to finish one card today using the lovely freebie from the Cute as a Button facebook group (I coloured the image yesterday)
and which I am joining in the challenge to say thank you for the freebie.

The challenge is on the facebook group

Lacy Sunshine 66 - back to school

Challenge 66 at Lacy Sunshine is back to school
http://lacysunshinechallengeblog.blogspot.com.au/
Each challenge if you use a Lacy Sunshine stamp you can request the free image for the next challenge.
The free image for this challenge is Eleanor and Pickles back to school.  If you didn't join in the last challenge you can buy this digi at a special price at http://lacysunshine.weebly.com/  (scroll down on the home page to the challenge digi)

I have printed the Lacy Sunshine stamp onto white card and coloured with markers.   Added sentiment from Create with TLC and layered all onto red card.
I didn't add any embellishments as I wanted to enter a clean and simple challenge.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
