Welcome to My Blog!

Hi Everyone,

As you can see, this is my very first blog post.  Due to insistent public demands (hahahaha), I have decided to start my own crafty blog where I can post everything crafty I make.  I have been reluctant to start one because I wasn't sure how much I can keep up with it so hopefully, I can post here regularly.  I can't promise to post something every day but I will try my best to post at least a couple of times a week.  Most of the items I will be posting here will be from Stampin' Up.  I will list the recipes for them and if  you have questions on how I made them, please feel free to ask questions.

So, in anticipation of my first blog post, I made a set of cards last night.  I'm not sure yet if it will be a class or a workshop project but I had lots of fun making it.  I got the idea of the cards from our Stampin' Up Demonstrator Exclusive website and thought I'd re-create it with my own twist.

 Here are some close ups:
