My First Upload!

I’ve slowly been working out this computer business! Slowly being the operative word! I have (with a bit of help – thankyou DH!) managed to take a photo of one of my recent cards with my new camera ( Lumix) that I bought especially for my trip to South Africa in April. That’s another post that I will fill you in on at another time!
And we have managed to upload it to the computer and to here! Yeah, I know most of you get this done in your sleep – I’m just a newbie at this!
Any way back to my card – I made this for my son’s 20th birthday in January and was very pleased with how it turned out. It was very appropriate seeing as he is a carpentry apprentice! The set For Father is in the current Stampin’Up! Summer Mini catalogue which you can view here. I originally didn’t order this set but after seeing so many lovely samples using it I decided I would just have to add it to my ever expanding collection!
I have stamped the background stamp Sanded Kraft card with Versamark. The image was coloured on Stampin’Up! watercolour card using an aqua painter and the inkpads for colour. I mounted it onto Real Red then Basic Black card. The ribbon is from the Ribbon Originals set Jersey. I added the black brads and finished off with the saying from Family Phrases punched out using the large oval punch.
DS was tickled pink with it!
Okay my first card post done – I will try again soon and show you the cards I am doing in my workshops during Sale-a-bration.
Have a lovely day!

Still learning!

Well the learning curve has certainly begun!
I still made time to stamp today. However taking photos of my creations and uploading them is also on the list of things to be learnt. I am so not computer savvy…….

You might have to wait awhile until I figure this whole blogging thing out!

Hope you all have fun creating something special for someone.

I’ve finally done it!

Well after all this time I have finally done it! I have created my own blog! If you happen to come across this little spot in cyberspace – WELCOME!

I only hope I will have the time to add a post every now and then and show you some of my cards and other papercraft items I’ve made. I’m always bursting with ideas about cards to stamp so will now have to make a point of knuckling down and doing them!

As an Independent Stampin’Up! demonstrator I thought this might be a fun way to show some of my creations with my lovely customers and for them to chat with me and share some ideas. I have met so many wonderful people and made some terrific friends since I started on my Stampin’Up! journey.

As I learn more about this blogging business I’ll get my little spot updated and add links and photos. Steep learning curve about to happen here!

So stayed tuned!
