Be gentle....

This is my first time blogging....please be gentle!

I have no idea what I'm doing or where this is going to go, but wanted to start a blog to post photos of my card creations.

My adventures in papercrafting all started when I decided to create a scrapbook of a trip we took with some friends to Oregon's wine country during Thanksgiving week of 2004. I thought it would be a great Christmas gift for them for that year..... I finally finished it and gave it to them in May of the following year, but by then I was hooked on paper crafting. Gradually my interest in scrapbooking gave way to the more instant gratification of card making and stamping.

I am currently on the card design team for my local scrapbook store - Scrap Chic Boutique in Decatur, Georgia. It has been a great challenge for me and I'm enjoying it immensely.

So, without further ado, here is my first card, which I made as one of my design team assignments for Scrap Chic Boutique:

Designer paper: SEI Poppy Rattan
Scalloped mat: Marco's Paper Stardream Stationery
Inks: Ranger Distress Inks - Tattered Straw,
Colorbox Q Cat's Eyes - Peacock
Stamps: Flower - Paper Salon - Bloom Builder; Sentiment - Impression Obsession
Other: Dew Drops - The Robin's Nest; Ribbon - JoAnn's; Jump Ring - Tim Holtz; Silver Leafing pen - Krylon; acrylic tag

Thanks for stopping by!
