Welcome to my blog! If someone had told me a year ago that someday I would have a blog, I would have never believed them. (Not sure I even knew what a blog was a year ago.) But here I am finally putting a timid foot into this world.

I have to tell you about my rosey blog banner. It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and one of my sons shipped me a bouquet. I took a picture of them and made my banner from the photo.

My boys know how much I love pink roses. In fact anyone who sees my home could figure that out. The only spaces not covered in roses are the boys’ rooms. I should have realized my love for paper way back when I was having so much fun picking out all the wallpaper that is everywhere in my home. Even my kitchen walls are covered in pink roses. (Yes I have a very tolerant husband who proclaims that when I’m happy he’s happy!)

The card I chose to post is one in my Splitcoaststampers (SCS) gallery from last month. I so love the sentiment and wanted it to be for anyone who has dropped by today (and gotten this far reading this post!) I will try to post often whenever I have something to share. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you will find your way back here again soon.


Stamps: Priceless, All Holidays

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Bali Breeze DP

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate, VersaMark

Accessories: Embossing Powder, Satin Ribbon in Chocolate, Pearls, Corner Punch

(Card was made using products from Stampin’ Up!.)
