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

Show us your Pussies (cats only) challenge 17 - furrything goes with optional Easter.
http://showusyourpussies.blogspot.com.au/2017/04/show-us-your-pussies-cats-challenges-17.html


My youngest daughter Angela's two youngest daughters Emily 20 and Brianna 8 are drawing together today.   They are drawing pictures to send to me for my birthday in a few days time.  They rang me as Brianna wanted to know what was my favourite animal.  The first thing I thought of was cat.
Emily has done this lovely drawing of a purple and pink cat (my favourite colours) and sent it by facebook.
It is such a love fun drawing I had to make it into a card for the challenge.

I have layered Emily's drawing onto paper from We are 3 Pretty Kitty paper collection and added sentiment from We are 3 Sunshine Sentiments collection.
Added flowers and butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.
