A New Blog

I have decided to start a blog so I can join in with a few card making challenges.  

It seemed such a good idea, until I came to write this first post.  What to write?  My mind went blank.  So I googled 'first blog post'.  That provided next to no help; all the articles I looked at were about how I could make money from my blog, or how they could make money from my blog!  I'm not here to make money.  

In the end I decided on a brief 'about me'.  I am a homeschooling mum of four, married to a wonderful man who loves to indulge my crafty fun.  I have always enjoyed making things, from clothes for my Sindy dolls as a youngster, to cross stitch embroidery, dress-making and other needle crafts as I got older.  Then one day we received a hand made invite to a friend's wedding.  "That's cool," I thought, and off I went in search of a paper crafting shop.  

This was my first card, way back in 2006.  I have bought a lot of stuff since then, tried a lot of new ideas and techniques, and I like to think improved massively.  I don't have a particular style because I just love EVERYTHING!  

This is one of my latest cards.  It was one of those cards I really struggled to part with I liked it so much!  I used the 'Kind soul' stamp and die from WPlus9, and the 'Congratulations' die from Simon Says Stamp.  The butterfly was a magazine freebie, but I don't remember which magazine it was.

Thank you for stopping by!
