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 made my card a few days ago but forgot to schedule my blog post so now I can't remember where I found all the items.  It has been so hot here it is hard to think.  Friday night was the hottest January night on record so hard to sleep.  Most days have been over 30C and some days over 40C (104F).

I hope you will go over to Feeling Sketchy and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.
