I've been reading blogs for a while now and have decided to start my own. I love to scrapbook, make cards and alter items and want that to be the focus of my blog with a few other things thrown in now and then. I enjoy reading other people's blogs for inspiration and motivation and hope that mine can be those things for others as well! For my first post, I chose this "Hello" card to share. I LOVE this bird stamp because of his long legs! For this card I used a textured card base from Crafts Etc., KI Memories shimmer paper (the plaid), Paper Co. shimmer paper (kiwi green), watercolor paper to stamp the bird onto, the bird stamp is from Hero Arts, the ribbon is from Michael's, and the hello stamp is snap stamps from Karen Foster. I used prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits to color the bird and chalk ink from clearsnap to edge the hello tab and the bird rectangle. I also zigzag stitched the sides on my sewing machine. I LOVE to sew on my cards and pages. I am really looking forward to sharing things on my blog and would love to hear your comments as well.
