Oh dear, now I have a blog, what on earth do I do with it?

Welcome to my very first blog post! I've whittled the day away trying to add a touch of shabby to the blog and now, when I need divine inspiration to strike to help me create a captivating and witty literary masterpiece, I find I've got terrible stage fright and am at a loss for words! Those of you that know me will know that's an incredibly rare event!

I can't promise I will faithfully blog every day, after all I've had a zillion attempts at keeping a diary, which has resulted in several beautiful books with only four or five entries in them! I will try to add a new paper creation at least once a week though.

For those of you who have stumbled upon this blog by accident, there is still time to RUN AWAY!!!  But for those that are still with me (a thousand million thank-yous!) - without any further ramblings - here is my very first card created from Stampin' Up! products. This one uses card stock from the Regals Collection and the new DSP Print Poetry. Stamp set is World Treasures. I hope you like it!

It started out as something completely different in my mind, but I am quite happy with how it turned out!

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:
  • World Treasures Stamp Set
  • Regals Collection Cardstock (More Mustard and Not Quite Navy)
  • DSP Print Poetry
  • Designer Silver Basics Buttons
  • Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Round Tab Punch (Retired)
  • Party Punch Stamp Set (Retired)

I hope your weekend was fabulous and I sincerely thank you for looking!

Hugs, Samantha
