Starting my own Blog

Hello friends

This is my first blog post.  I have been making cards for about 2 years now and just love to design and create  original cards.  My styles are Traditional, One Layer and Clean and Simple.  I recently made the featured card using Catherine Pooler inks (they are new on the market) and Winnie & Walter’s Eva’s Favorite Flower stamps.  I do love bright colors and this card just makes me happy.  I also used some Stickles crystal drops.

This blog is to share my love of card making, stamps, inks and all that involves.  My own consulting business of 15 years is closing down for retirement and I have turned my home office into my craft room.  It is time to move onto that time of my life and I am so happy to have found this hobby;  and am looking forward to making it more than just a cash outflow.

My favorite products are mostly from GinaKDesigns.  Most of my cards I will be using her cardstock because in my opinion there is nothing else out there like it.  I also have her inks in both full size and mini cubes.  And a large tub of her stamping products.    Other products I really enjoy using are Altenew, Catherine Pooler, SoSuzyStamps,  UnityStamps, and Stampin Up.

So far I have been making LOTS and LOTS of cards.  I send some out; I give sets as gifts to friends; I have sold some to neighbors in my condo group.  But I still have so many, many on hand as some of my crafting friends also do. I mean actual tubs of them, along with my rotating rack of favorites.

So I am making plans and setting up myself for selling cards out in the world and planning to work on this blog, start doing videos, and all the other fun things to become involved with in the cardmaking / stamping community.  I feel so at home here.

So I look forward to hearing from you all and hope you will enjoy my future posts.  This will be a learning experience – hoping with not too much of a learning curve.
