My First Blog Post

This is my first ever blog post!  I decided to create a blog in order to participate in paper crafting challenges.  I started wandering through stamping blogs last fall and was recently very inspired by Papertrey Ink's 2-year anniversary challenges.  Seems this will be a good way to keep me using my stockpile of crafting supplies, and spare my husband from having to dutifully "ooh and ahh" over every card that I make.

For this first post, I decided to combine Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration with the CPS Sketch.  Surprisingly enough, I quickly mounted a new stamp set and opened an untouched pack of paper.  Amazing!  Normally I just dink around with my goodies, or buy new stuff before I ever open the old.

I just slapped this blog together to get moving, so maybe I'll fancy it up if I stick with it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies (all SU!)
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Cardstock:  More Mustard, Really Rust, Whisper White
Ink: More Mustard, Really Rust, Old Olive markers; Not Quite Navy, Old Olive classic
Accessories: More Mustard DSP, Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon, Really Rust button, corner rounder punch, double slot punch
