Not just any other day…

Today is not just any other day.  Sure, it’s a typical Sunday, which includes laundry, errands, cooking, and lounging.  My DH is off at the Barrett Jackson show (thanks to my boss for the tickets) so I had the day to myself (sort of – the kids are still here and I’m still not feeling 100% better yet).   However, in between cooking and tending to the kiddos, I spent most of today looking at blogs and trying to get motivated to create something for my very first upload!  It’s a card I made today using mostly CTMH products.  I used paper from the new Wings collection (one of my faves) and the new color ready Kraft borders.  The first time I tried to color them, the color was too dark, so I turned it over and colored the other side, which is white.  I didn’t realize that they they are self-sticking, so I colored the removable strip on the back!  I’ve done that a few times now – you’d think I’d learn to check!  Anyway, I colored the kraft border sticker black and used the new wider Sweet Leaf ribbon.  The sentiment is from one of the new stamp sets called Rosy Regards.   I also used the CTMH pearls in cocoa and a SU! punch for the border on the DSP.

Thanks for looking today and I hope you have a great evening!

Hello World!

Welcome to my new blog!  I’d like to think I’m fairly computer savy, but I have had a hard time getting my own blog up and running.  After hours of reading and playing around with it, I think I’ve finally figured it out – at least minimally.  I can’t believe I’m finally here – for everyone to see!  I wanted to start my own blog not because I have anything really important to say, but I can’t participate in challenges (a big motivation for creating), and I wanted a place to showcase my cards and scrapbook pages.  Maybe one day my creations will be important to someone, other than myself!  I can’t wait to start.  I’m a busy gal with a family and full-time job, but hopefully you’ll be seeing more from me really soon!  Welcome!!
