Good afternoon! It's a delight to introduce you to another of our new Design team members.. actually this lady was the first to join our new team and has been a fantastic help and encouragement in our first days and months of opening the store - it's because of her that we have the Progressive digi challenge happening on the facebook group :D

Margaret aka ... Granmargaret

I am 71 and live in Sydney, Australia with my husband Tony.  I have two daughters and four granddaughters.  My granddaughters and all their friends call me Granmargaret.  I was made redundant at work at the end of January 2013 so after working for 53 years I am now retired.  
I started stamping and making cards in 1995 and started scrapbooking about 1999 and making ATCs in 2005.  I am still a cute stamper and make simple cards.  My favourite colours are purples and pinks. I started my blog in April 2012 with the help of cyber friends and started joining challenges to give me ideas for my cards and then was happy to be invited to join some design teams.  I have lots of rubber and clear stamps but use mostly digital stamps now as they are easier on my sore hands.
I am group Mum on some yahoo stamping groups
I suffer from fibromyalgia and arthritis and have eye problems so spend my days making cards, a little scrapbooking and talking to my cyber friends on the internet.  This helps take my mind off the pain. 
I have made many more cyber friends since starting my blog.
My eldest daughter Lynda and I are cancer survivors and we thank God for every day and for all our friends who pray for us.

I was happy to be invited to be on the digi design team for Mad for Markers and look forward to making cards for the blog with Sammi’s lovely stamps.
