Ok, here I am, in blogland....what a nice place to be. I am so addicted to reading everyone else's blog, so I decided that maybe I should share too. ALSO...it causes me to get off my...tail...and use the products that I am so awesome at collecting...right? The goal is to use more so I can buy more...that is the way it should be...right? My goal is to post at least every other day, and maybe...just maybe....I will have some blog traffic, and get connected to other crafters from all over the place. The key here is to get busy....and create. So here is a card that I created for my sweet cousin, Sharon, who is like a sister to me, honestly. And when we get together, it doesn't matter what the situation is, even if it is the gravest of situations, we will find a way to laugh at each other, because that is just the way we are, and I love her so much. I thought that Cosmobella from Stamping Bella was just perfect for her birthday card. The thing is, the more I stamped and looked at all the white space, the more of these things called "Copics" I used. Oh...so you have heard of them? I love them, but am NOT that great at using them...yet... but I am working on it. I freehanded the grass and stepping stones, and the topiary stamp is from a retired SU set called Sweet of You. I got carried away on the coloring and keep in mind that I have not had these Copics long. Tell me what you think, and if you have any constructive criticism, let me know, I can take it. Lol!
