My first blog post!!!!!! WooHoo!!!!! I should pinch myself. I finally decided to jump on board the blogging wagon!!!!! Here is a card I did today for Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge CC183. I was halfway through my card making when I realized that going gray was the light gray SU cardstock and not the dark gray. It has been awhile since I used these shades. I embraced the gray and the green. Iwanted to keep the card layout pretty simple to emphasize the coneflower. I love this Single Coneflower stamp from CHF. The sized is perfect for coloring and cutting. I actually cut out the cone and the petals and adhered on dimensionals. I am practicing my coloring. I do not own copic markers, yet. I have purchased some permanent bic and sharpie markers. I really like the results with these so far. I finished my card with some ribbon and a bow with a touch of pearl. The sentiment is also by CHF called Script Essential Expressions.

  2. P.S. I updated my sidebar link, so clicking on your name now links people here instead of your SCS gallery. :)

  9. I'm so happy I found you! I came across some of your cards on SCS quite a while ago - I think it was you who was talking about coloring and a self imposed coloring challenge??? Then I forgot your username and couldn't find you. I'm happy to see you're blogging and look forward to your beautiful creations!

    Happy Stamping!
