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

12 months of Christmas cards link up challenge 37 - A Touch of Frost - midway post

12 months of Christmas cards link up challenge 37 - A Touch of Frost
http://12monthsofchristmaslinkup.blogspot.com.au/

Our extra sponsor this month is Scribbles Designs
http://buyscribblesdesigns.blogspot.com.au/

It was so hot in Sydney when I made this card so my colouring is not the best.
I have used Scribbles Designs digi stamp Three B's trio which I coloured with markers and a glitter pen for the star.
1 paper from Lisa's Starry sky paper set and 3 papers from Lisa's Rich Colours Collection which she made especially for this set.

       

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

Everyone who enters two or more cards will receive one paper from the Rich Colours collection and one person will win the whole set.
If you follow the theme you will go into the draw to win the sponsor's prize.

Sadly this will be my last post for a while for the 12 months of Christmas as I am having a break from the design team.  I thank Lisa for adding me to here design team back in February 2016 and for all her help and encouragement over the last two years.

I would like to add my card to the following:
