I started blogging about 3 years ago after visiting Pink Petticoats website to buy some papers and following the link to their blog, oh my gosh the wonderful creations I saw on the blog just blew me away and and I knew that I wanted to be able to create stunners like the ones saw I on there and to be able to share them with other crafters, the first link from the Pink Petticoat Blog I clicked on was to the Fabulous Dawny P’s Blog, from there I found Andrea Brownjohn, Annie (ink’n rubba), Katharina and Marlene all fantastic crafters who never minded answering all the questions I used to throw at them, I was hooked. Now I bet you are wondering where this reminiscing is leading, well this morning I received a fantastic e-mail (it actually brought tears to my eyes) from a lovely lady (you know who you are), who thanked me for the inspiration I had given her, it just made me realise what a truly fantastic place the card making blogging world is and how much I had gained from that first visit to Dawny P’s blog, 100’s of new friends from around the world, working for 2 fantastic companies, Lili of the Valley, Crafters Companion, demoing at Shows where I meet such sweet like minded people and also the chance of having my work published in magazines. I feel really bad that all this has now eaten into my blogging time and I know I am very naughty in leaving comments, (I promise I do visit blogs still though), but I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who visit me and to thank the girls who inspired me to start my own blog.
Todays card is one I made for Quick Cards made Easy, which is on sale now so its OK to show it, I am afraid I made it so long ago I cannot remember which Copics I used.
I have used the Lili of the Valley Image “Little Holly” to make this little rocker card, the papers are from Nitwits Collections, the scalloped circles have been cut with Nesties and Go-Kreate dies. The greeting is also a stamp from the Lili of the Valley Christmas Circular Sentiment stamp set, The swirl is a Doo Hickey Die from Crafts U Love and I have added lots of stickles.
Have a lovely Saturday
