Dipping a toe into Blog Land

So this is Blog Land and here I am 'bravely' making my first post. After months and months of reading many wonderful blogs from some very talented cardmakers and crafters I have finally taken the plunge and decided to join in.  I certainly never thought that I would be blogging but I'd like to enter some card challenges and it seems easier to do this if you have a blog. I've always been a crafter but have had to give up on most crafts due to arthritic hands. I was pleased to discover card making a couple of years ago and although I'm slow, I'm happy!  Not sure how often I'll be posting - it won't be daily but hopefully at least once a week - luckily I've got some of my past creations photographed and ready to share although not all at once. I wouldn't want to scare you off before I've even started. Here's a couple of photos to begin with then.

The design papers are Henbury Lane Collection from Papermania, as is the lush felt butterfly. Craftworks card candy in lilac, ribbon and base/mirri card from stash. Square cut using Nestabilities Lacey Squares.

Design Papers and topper from K&Company, base and mirri card from stash.
Martha Stewart punches - Deep Edger Infinite Loops & Scroll Lace Corner Punch
Sentiment cut using Nestabilities Labels 8 - Numbers cut using Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet.

That's my first post then folks, hope you made it to the end in one piece and will look in again soon.
