My Shiny New Blog and First Card Post

Welcome to my all new blog! A great big THANK YOU to my incredibly talented and super sweet friend, Veronica. She made the gorgeous blog header for me. It's perfect. I'm very excited to be a part of The Busy Bees Bloggers Group. I hope to post two cards and/or scrapbook pages per week.

What you can expect from this blog:

- One or two posts per week

- Projects using a variety of stamps, papers, and supplies ~I'm not loyal to any specific company. I just buy and use what I love.

- Clean and simple designs ~ I'm not usually up on the latest trends, and quite frankly, I don't have hours and hours to spend on one card. As a result, many of my cards are simplistic when compared to others. However, I embrace a clean and simple style.

So, for my first card:

I fell in love with this sentiment stamp as soon as I spotted it at the Great American Scrapbooking Convention in Chantilly, VA, earlier this summer. I finally found the time to ink it up last week. I think my next few stamp purchases are going to be Christian/Verse themed. I love the way the shades of blue work together in this card. Also, it's impossible to tell from this photo, but the sentiment itself is pop dotted away from the rest of the card. That really adds dimension. Also, the gold hues in the patterned paper are picked up in the gold elements of the ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by my new blog. I hope to gather lots of new followers, and more importantly, new friends!

Love and a Hug,
