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

Lyrics for Easter Parade (part only)
In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade

They used to show this movie on TV at Easter.  I was very disappointed that they didn't have this or any other special Easter programs this year.

Joined another design team - Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Day Friday - plus update on Lynda

I have good news - I have been added to design team A for Jo's Scrap Shack Fun day Friday challenge blog.  The new design team has been announced today
http://jwscrapshack.blogspot.com.au/


My first challenge will be 134 on 15 April, 2016.

I have been having worse pain days this week so this helped brighten my days.

I came home on Sunday night after seven weeks staying with my daughter Lynda looking after her.  She has chronic regional pain syndrome in her right leg after a fall in March last year and has been on crutches ever since.  On 19 January she had to have a hysterectomy on the Tuesday afternoon and she came home on the Thursday morning.  On the following Sunday she blacked out and fell and broke her bad leg.  (Thankfully it wasn't her good leg she broke).  Thankfully my other daughter Angela was staying at her house that weekend and called the ambulance.  They operated on her on the Sunday night and put a titanium rod and pins in her leg and she came home the next day.  Angela took a week off work and stayed with her.  She had to go back to the mountains the next week so I went down to Lynda's to help her.

I came back home last Sunday night as Lynda is determined to look after herself (on her crutches) with help from her daughter Sian, and Sian needed her bed back.  Sian is in her final year at school so has important exams this year.   Angela's second daughter Emily has been staying there this week to work at the zoo so she was able help out.   I would appreciate prayers for Lynda as she is still in a lot of pain and not able to walk without the crutches.  Thank you.

The Glory of Christmas 80 - Reuse/recycle old Christmas card

Myrna picked the theme for The Glory of Christmas challenge 80 this fortnight - reuse/recycle old Christmas card.
http://thegloryofchristmaschallenge.blogspot.com.au/

I wanted to cut up an old Christmas card and make something new but I am not at home and don't have any with me so I am reusing a scan of a card I made in February 2014.


Layered 2 pieces of pattern paper from Christmas basics 12x12 pad onto green card.  Stamped Christmas wishes.

Printed Digi Stamps 4 Joy MP245 my first Christmas, coloured with markers and layered onto red card and then onto papers.

I hope you will go over to The Glory of Christmas and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

Cute as a Button March Inspiration post.

Hello everyone, here is my March inspiration card for Cute as a Button which I have posted on the Cute as a Button showcase blog.
http://cuteasabuttonshowcase.blogspot.com.au/

I have used the precoloured Cute as a Button digi IMG 00384 Mother Nature.  You can also buy this image as a black and white digi stamp for you to colour.
Pattern paper (under image), frame, flowers, butterflies and sentiment from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

I can't take photos of the process but it is very simple.
In Publisher I layered the precoloured stamp onto pattern paper, then layered the frame over the top.  Added butterflies, flowers and sentiment.
