So, after a lot of encouragement and support from my blog friends, I decided it was high time I start a blog for myself. I mean, hey, it might be nice to have my own little corner in "Cyber-Land" to call my own, right?
My purpose is to connect with family and friends, and to have a place to share my handmade cards and ideas. I hope everyone will feel welcome here, and want to stop by often...please don't hesitate to ask questions or make suggestions. I am brand new at this, and I welcome everyone's comments!
Before I move on to my card, I want to thank my sweet blog friends for encouraging me to take this step...Hugs to all!!!
I created this card for 3 challenges CAS(E) This Sketch. This is sketch #49 by the super talented Karolyn Loncon; Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge Blog (http://addictedtostamps-challenge.blogspot.co.uk/) with the theme 'Anything Goes’, and for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where we are to use either a rubber or clear stamp.
Usually, I take my photos in a light box, but it's often difficult to see certain details on a card. So, this time, I used natural light (note the shadows on the right), but at last I can see the texture from my Impression Plate on the front panel...Yay! I also used Simon Says Stamp "Be" stamp set and die with their cloud dies, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Until I figure out how to add the appropriate link, here is a list of supplies I used on this card:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp - Be
Ink: Stampin’ Up - Night of Navy
Cardstock: PTI - Stamper’s Select White; Bazzill Card Shoppe - Icy Mint; Stash - Dark Blue and Pink
Dies: Simon Says Stamp - Be, Cloud Speech Bubble; Memory Box - Butterfly Delights
Impression Plate: PTI - Linen and Canvas
Gem: Prima - Mini Pearl
I hope everyone is having a fun and crafty weekend...or at least getting outside to enjoy some of the beautiful autumn weather we are having in the U.S.!
Also, I would like to wish all of our friends in Canada a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
Well, that's it for me...Thank you all so, very much for stopping by!
