Test Post


I have been meaning to start a blog for some time.  I have gotten so much inspiration from reading others' blogs, that I am finally jumping on the bandwagon.  I hope that you will pass along any comments and suggestions you have for improving my blog, as well as my cards.

Without further ado, here goes:

My first ever blog posted card is .....another card I made casing Laurie Willison from Soapbox Creations.  I had been meaning to make this card for my sister's anniversary.  I figured I'd make it this week and play along some more with the Papertrey Paper Dolls.  Here is Laurie's card.

And, here is my card:

The tag opens to reveal the Happy Anniversary message inside:

Supplies Used: 
Stamps:  Verve Wishing You, PTI Turning a New Leaf, Flower Fusion #6
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, Harvest Gold, SU Real Red
Other:  PTI Dies:  Tag Sale #4, Leafy Vine Border, Harvest Gold ribbon, pearls, Velcro

Thanks for looking
