My First Card

Amy Tsuruta is challenging repost the first card we posted on our blog.  Well, I have been away and have not made anything new this past week, so this was the perfect challenge for today.

My card is not that old.  I started blogging May 2009, just over a year ago.  Who would have thought I would be was really all by chance.  I went to SCS to case a card and came across a caption that mentioned visiting a blog.  I was one of those who just peeked in the gallery and rarely left comments.  Honestly, I did not even know what a blog was at that time.  It was Jen del Muro's blog that I came across and I was inspired, blown away and amazed that paper crafting could be soooo incredibly different than what I was seeing at home parties.  I then took part in Stamping Out Alzheimers and had so much fun - I got very little sleep that week, because I was stamping during every free minute.  I felt like my cards were getting better, so I took the plunge and created my own blog. 
Many of my friends who started out paper crafting with me have given it up, so my blogging buddies keep me going!!!!  We all share the same love and some would say obsession with paper crafts.  I consider so many of you friends, I appreciate every single comment and uplifting message you leave.  I could seriously gush on and on.  Sooooooo THANK YOU, for stopping by!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 


  1. This is lovely, Julie and what a unique challenge. I've got a few friends who started stamping when I did who no longer do it because they don't have time. I've also met many bloggers who are now friends who I you!
