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

Crafting with Dragonflies 98 - special folds

Crafting with Dragonflies 98 - special folds
http://crafting-with-dragonflies.blogspot.com.au/


I have made an easel card using We are 3 papers from Magical Butterflies paper set (there are 8 papers in the set)
Sentiment from We are 3 Birthday wishes sentiment set
Digistamps4Joy precoloured digi stamp JL811 Butterfly Bella (you can also buy this digi as a black and white digi for you to colour).
Card behind Bella was embossed with Crafts Too butterflies embossing folder.

The photo is not very clear and does
not show the colours in the paper.   I usually scan my cards but had to take a photo as this was a stand up easel card.  I don't have a very good camera.

I hope you will go over to Crafting with Dragonflies and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.
