Not the usual Christmas colors.

Judging by the weather outside it won't be long until the snow starts flying and I can make a snowman with the grandkids. Until then this card will get me in the mood to brave the cold. I made it for the sketch challenge over at CardMaker Magazine Card Swap. You can find the link here

Normally I stick to traditional colors but I couldn't resist this paper and cardstock by The Paper Studio. I got it at Hobby Lobby. The turquoise cardstock lookss a lot darker in the photo than it really is. Maybe while I'm learning this blog stuff I can learn how to take better photos! (giggle) Hope you enjoy looking at my card and Thanks for stopping by.

Problems leaving comments??

Uh-Oh! I've heard from some of my friends that they had trouble leaving a comment for me. I'm so sorry about that and I've tried to fix it. You now have the option to comment as Anonymous. If you don't mind, please leave you first name so I'll know who it's from.

Small Business Saturday

Saturday I visited my not so local stamp store "Toyrifix" in Smithville, Ohio. The name is from the educational toys they sell but they have a fabulous section devoted to stamps and paper and all kinds of goodies. Tammy Hershberger is the manager of the stamp section, but she wasn't working Saturday. Brenda was kind enough to let me take her pic with all their goodies. Here's the link to their website:  http://www.toyrifix.com/ NOTICE: Toyrifix decided in the summer, 2012, to close its section for stamping and crafting. Now the store is toys only. Very Sad!!

Here's the photo of Brenda and a section of their stamp department.

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome everyone! I've finally taken the plunge and created my first blog. I must admit I don't really have a clue what I'm doing or even how to do it. However, if you bear with me, I will eventually learn.
