My very first post.


This is my very first post.  I have wanted to have a blog of my own for a while now and I finally jump in and joined.  YAY!!
       I am a crafter by heart.  I love doing all kinds of things anywhere from drawing to making things out of paper and the list goes on.  I once made my son a paper rifle out of plain white paper.  He then took to his crayons and colored it all kinds of colors.  It turned out really good.  Looked like a "colorful" real rifle.  lol.  Kids will be kids.  I am married with two wonderful kids.  My latest enjoyment is making cards and gift bags.  I will be mainly posting about crafting and things I make so I hope you enjoy what I post in the future and bare with me as I am a newbie and learning as I go.

Pictured is a card I made for a challenge I did on the Fiskateer site.  Yup I'm a Fiskateer and Proud to be one.  I love the challenges there and the fun, loving people that share the same love of crafting.  If you want to learn more about that you can go to www.fiskateers.com.   Take a look around and ask to join.  You will have a ton of fun.   Now on to my card, I made it for the challenge "On the red carpet" for the Academy Awards.  We had to choose something that inspired us like a dress or accessory.  My inspiration came from Nancy O'dell's gown.  It was yellow with a black lacey overlay.  I used the Fiskars Grandma's Doily punch for this.  I hope you like my card and my first post.  Thank you for visiting.  Hope to be back soon with some more creations.
