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.

  8. Penny, as usual, you did an outstanding job on your cards. They are absolutely beautiful. I love them all, but I'm torn between two as my favorite. I love the poinsettia with a bit of Scottish flair and the ornament card is beautifully designed. I just love the way you placed the ornaments together.
