Wow! I can't believe this is my second card today. I do not usually have this much crafting time in a day. I call this card butterfly kisses. It is a cute fairy from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The cardstock is from Stampin Up and the designer paper is Basic Grey's Pyrus. The image is colored with Copic markers. The flower is by Basic Grey also. They are called bloomers and are made of fabric. This one is from the Pyrus collection. The scallop is cut from a punch by EK Success. The ribbon is Stampin Up and I added a little butterfly charm.

Glamour Girl

Good morning stampers. It is warm here, but very dreary. We are supposed to have rain and a cold front to come through later. I just want to keep the warm weather.

Today, I give you my little glamour girl. The image is from Lili of the Valley. Isn't she just too cute. She is colored with Copic markers, mostly in various shades of pink. My cardstock is from Stampin Up and my designer papers are Basic Grey's Lemonade. My sentiment is from TLC Creations. She has some of the best sentiments and lots of freebies too. I used the circle and the scalloped circle die cuts from Spellbinders. My flowers are from Martha Stewart Crafts and the ribbon is American Crafts Elements. The sentiment was punched out with Stampin Up's Extra Large Modern Label punch and the pearl gems are from Recollections.

Blog Design

I have been browsing the blog templates.  There are so many out there to choose from.  But, I have managed to find one that I think will work for now.  It took some time to figure out how to make it work.  I tried three different templates and all three were uploaded differently.  Now, my next project will be how to upload a picture.  I might tackle that tomorrow.

First Post

Well, I finally took the step and created a blog for my cards.  I like to enter my cards in the online challenges and I thought this would make it easier.  I started out scrapbooking and have moved on to stamping and making cards.  I hope viewers will enjoy the cards that I will post.
