Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

  5. Penny, there are so many good things to say about both cards. The tags on your first card are absolutely adorable. I also really like the double-looped bow on that card. Of course, Gina's papers are fabulous. The cozy Christmas fireplace scene you created is awesome. The tree is colored fabulously. The coloring and shading on the fireplace is phenomenal though. I also love the picture above the fireplace...that was a great touch! You totally ROCK my friend!!
