The First of Many

Saturday, 30th June, 2012

Welcome to my very first blog entry.

A little about me.... Come September, I'll have been married to my perfect partner, Darryl, for 13 years. (You know what they say "Lucky for some... infinitely lucky for me!") We have an amazing son, Alex, who repeatedly shares with us his unique look on life and makes my day ... every day. We live in mostly sunny Queensland, Australia and are lucky to be surrounded by family who all live in our corner of the world. We also share our home with Foster, who is our dog; a Tibetan Spaniel X Corgi (think of a Golden Retriever with short corgi legs).

I have been scrapbooking for 5 years, but cardmaking for many more than that. I've gravitated back to cardmaking over the past few years as it can be done in short periods of time and this is important when I'm feeling bad with Chronic Fatigue which I've had for the past 20 years.

My favourite style is shabby chic - anything with ribbons, lace and flowers - I just love them! But I will create in any style, when the need arises. A friend has just moved into a new home, so I made a card for her. I hope you like my first on-line card. (Sorry the colour's not too great, a little too grey.)

I used a strip of Heidi Grace Designs paper "A Little Bird's Tale - Houses" along with two sheets from Crafters Choice "Country Basics". Some Kaisercraft Droplets, Celebrate ribbon and an Abi's Craft epoxy brad completed the card. Quick, easy and cute - just the way I like it. I printed the sentiment on my computer and used "Digs My Hart" font.

Anyway, that's enough for today.
