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

Cutie pie challenge 114 - Boys will be boys

Cutie pie challenge 114 - boys will be boys
http://cutiepiechallenge.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/challenge-no-114-boys-will-be-boys.html

I made this card for my 2nd grand daughter's boyfriend for his birthday this month.  He has two pet guinea pigs.

While they were visiting me a few weeks ago he drew this boy for me and I printed the boy and added the precoloured guinea pigs, leaves and cage from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.   I coloured the boy with markers and the background with chalks.

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