Well girls here we are at last, I'm finally ready to post with pictures. I do so hope that you feel that it has been worth the wait. I've so much to share with you that I just don't know where to start, so here goes. I have made thousands of cards over the years - and photcopied every single one - how sad is that!! But that doesn't really help to post as they are just as a rough guide for my reference. I feel that the first card that I share with you just has to be a stamped one as that is just my favourite thing to do, so I thought that I would share the card that I made for my daughter Becki's birthday on the 14th of this month. The card is made using a Penny Black floral stamp which has been inked up with the versamagic mini ink pads. The stamped image has then been clear embossed. The words have been stamped over the image afterwards.The right side of the panel has then been run through the cuttlebug and the bottom left hand corner has been embellished with three of the Craftwork Cards purple Card Candy. This panel has then been mounted onto a piece of gold paper and trimmed to leave a narrow border. The main card is made from Bazzil cardstock which has been put through the cuttlebug using the same swirly embossing folder. This has been embellished with mettalic rub ons before the floral panel has been mounted onto it. This post has just taken me about 3 days to complete as I have had terible trouble trying to import the pictures. It wont let me put other ones in at the end as I wanted to it just puts them at the top of the page so I'm obvoisly doing something wrong. I've wrecked my laptop so now I have taken over my daughters. Who said this blogging lark was easy??? I just hope that you like what I've posted and lets hope the next one will be easier to do. Stick with me. I hope it will be worth it. Happy Stamping Love Kimx
