Welcome & Hello

Hi! Welcome to my crafty corner. I am brand new to blogging, so my daughter, Kim (from Crafts by Kim) is teaching me how to share my creations with you all! I look forward to getting to know more people in the crafting cyber world. I haven't been stamping or card making for very long....(my mother has been stamping for years).....my daughter hosted a Stampin' Up party at my house a year ago, and I have been hooked every since. My daughter, has been sharing her love of Copics with me, so I am now on the Copic band wagon adding to my collection slowly.

I hope you enjoy my creations that I share. First is a WOJ card. I love all of the WOJ stamps that my daughter buys and shares with me.

The finished inside:

Recipe:
Stamps:
Willow with hot chocolate from WOJ
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Stampin' Up Markers
Papers:
Basic Grey Bittersweet collection, and others from my stash
Tools:
MS monarch butterfly punch, Fiskars border punches, nesties, SU embossing die, cuttlebug script embossing folder.
Embellishments:
ribbon, and flowers from my stash.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

God Bless~
Mary Lou

Hi Mary Lou! You did a great job posting! Your blog looks great! I love this card and especially love how you finished off the inside so pretty! I also love your blog bg! You'll laugh, but though I had done some limited stamping back in the 90's, mainly making Christmas tags, and though I'd get my shoebox out occasionally and play with them, everything I owned for 15 years fit in a shoebox. THEN... MY Daughter had a SU! party... and I didn't even go... she lived 6 hours away at the time... but when she came for her 2 week summer vacation, I looked through the catalog and started ordering, buying locally, on Ebay and oh my... it's crazy how much I have accumulated in a couple short years! I do love this craft though and there's so much good that can be done with it! I can see you have the gift and it's great you can share with your daughter!!! I'm dying for some WOJ stamps... there are a few lines I want so, but I feel guilty buying any more right now so it's on hold for now. Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck in the candy draw!!!
