My First Post

Ok, I guess I need to start posting since I decided to blog.
Not sure how frequent this will be, although I would like to
upload photos of some of my cards and scrapbook layouts to
share. I just became a Wantobe Quilter thanks to my sister Dawn ( Check out her site, she has some
amazing quilts there. There is a button on the left side of my page
            that will link you to hers.

This first post is an Easter card I made.
It would also work nicely as a sympathy card.

 I used Bazzill cardstock for the card base (A2 size). The white is basic smooth surfaced cardstock from my stash. I like the smooth surface when I am stamping. The stamp is from Heartfelt Creations. They really have some beautiful stamps. (I was lucky enough to win this one at CHA-Houston 2010). I stamped it first on the white cardstock that I had attached to the card. I then stamped it 2 additional times on a separate piece of white cardstock. I used watercolor pencils and a waterbrush to color the book, leaves and stamens. I then cut and paperpieced using foam dots for the 3D effect. I used some blue ribbon from Michaels craft store as the bookmark. I hope you like it. Feel free to comment.
