My FIRST Post!

Let me tell you- I am SO excited to start a blog, I don't really know where to begin. I've been contemplating this for quite some time. Well after much thought, here it is! Mission completion! (Any Little Einsteins moms out there?) I thought I'd add my newest creation to start...

Did you dare to get dirty? I had a blast last week during Splitcoaststampers DTGD challenge week! I had a few Dirty Dozen challenges outstanding that I wanted to complete- I was already dreary eyed at work as it was, so staying up even later was out of the question.

This tag card was Yvette's challenge. I haven't ever made a tag card before, so this is a first for me. I pulled out Heartfelt Thanks for this challenge, and used papers from BoBunny and Daisy D's, which I thought coordinated really well, even though the papers are SO different. I also used Stampin' Up!'s Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp, and True Thyme colors. My absolute favorite techniques include distressing and aging with DTP and sponging inks. The triangular brown piece is a "Boho Chic" metal accessory from Making Memories. I left the center blank so I can leave a personal note to the recipient of this thank you card.

Hi Kelly! Congrats on your new Blog! Be prepared to spend a lot of time on your new addiction :) LOL I didn't get Dirty enough last week for the challenges! I spent too much time looking and not making -- opps!!

"We're going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship....zooming through the sky...." Yep...another fan here. My daughter is 6 and STILL loves to watch that. And as a baby she LOVED the baby einstein videos :) I did too...very soothing.

Can't wait to see more of your creations! I'll add you to my blog list of Bloggers Around the World and check back in with you. Have Fun!!
