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

Inspiration post for Cute as a Button

Hello everyone, it is my turn to do an inspiration post for September for Cute as a Butter showcase blog
https://cuteasabuttonshowcase.blogspot.com.au/
I have made a journal page

I have printed Cute as a Button digi stamp IMG00112 Flashdance onto white card.  I separated the sentiment and made it bigger.  Coloured digi stamp with markers.
Drew a pink line around the digi and around the sentiment with Pink Kirarina Wink pen.
Painted the rest of the page with acrylic Vintage Rose paint, leaving a white border around the digi.
When dry stamped Stamp It Music in the air and The dance stamps with Brilliance Ink.  (It doesn't show up very well in the scan but you can see it better on the original).
Painted edges with Pink Blush acrylic ink.

There is no challenge for September as Francesca is on holidays.

Inspiration posts every so often on this Showcase blog:
