Whooo am I & What am I (th)inking?

Hello to all.  Welcome to the first day of my blog.   This will be a little about me and a lot about creating with stamps, ink, and paper.  I am a newbie Stampin' Up!® demonstrator who got REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hooked on the great colors and products of Stampin' Up! three years ago.  Can anyone else out there identify with that?  Luckily I'm married to a great guy (40 years this month) who is patient and understanding about all the time I spend "playing".  I hope I can inspire you to bring out your inner creativity.  Please leave a comment to let me know what you think of this blog and/or my paper creations.  Blogging is a new adventure for me so this is still a work in progress.  Continue to come back and share the journey with me.  If I can answer any questions you might have about the products of Stampin' Up!, don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank You Card

The following card was made for my newly engaged son and future daughter to send out after their recent engagement party.  It's a clean and simple card that they both liked.

The flourish from Elements of Style stamp set was heat embossed using the VersaMark® ink pad and clear Stampin' Emboss® powder.  The rest of the card is finished off using the products listed below.

Thanks for stopping by and please visit again.  I will be giving away some blog candy in the near future to celebrate the launch of my blog.
