a small beginning

This is my very first post on my brand new blog! I started this blog mainly to share the results of my new hobby: card-making! It is such a fun, creative and useful thing to do...I love it! I hope to participate in a few of the "challenges" offered by other card-makers or groups. I must give credit where credit is due: the two people who introduced me to card-making are my good friend Sherry, who has been making beautiful cards for years and years (and I greatly envy her wonderful collection of stamps!!) and Cindy from I had the priviledge of helping out for a short time in Cindy's shop so I was able to see a fantastic array of paper crafting supplies and and even got free "instructions" on how to use most of the stuff! That was the funnest job ever! But now I am thoroughly hooked; making cards for people to enjoy is so rewarding....I pull out a pretty piece of card stock, notice a ribbon that coordinates nicely and...oh, I just have to try that new acrylic stamp I just got! The creative juices start flowing! Right now I should be making 3 "get well" cards for people at church, a sympathy card, a birthday card for my son, and an encouragement card for a cancer patient. But I'm going camping in 6 days...I think my Cuttlebug is coming along to the campground!
