Happy Birthday and Hello!

Hello there!! I can't tell you how excited I am to be here today, my first post as a DT member for this new term!! I have loved Vanessa's store for a while and LOOOVE her selection and amazing fast shipping! Coast to coast she gets me my order in 2 days, gotta love that :)

I have been stamping for about 10 years now. I started out scrapbooking, but quickly realized that stamping and card making is where my heart is at. In the past year, I've begun experimenting in mixed media and art journaling and my love of papercrafts has just exploded! I am never bored, never looking for something to fill my time. I just love this hobby of ours, so fulfilling and look at all these fabulous people and friends we meet! GAH! I'm just so happy to be here:)

Okay, now for my card!

I pulled out some Heidi Swapp Favorite Things 6x6 paper pad and picked a couple patterns I liked. Next, I ran the pink piece through my Bigshot with MFT's Stitched Speech Bubble die to create that fun piece for my sentiment! The sentiments are from WPlus9's Strictly Sentiments 5 stamp set. I love this stamp set, there is a greeting for many occasions and the font is just to die for! The little white flowers are from MFT's Scribbles Die-namics. I turned the scribbles into a couple roses and then hand-drew in some stems and leaves, as well as the border around the card front. I used the delicious Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks to sponge on the pink and turquoise/white pieces, I love the depth this quick little inking created, and those colors, them:)

Well that about does it for me today! I'm so excited to be here among this fabulous design team and all of you! I can't wait to share more and make new friends:) Thanks for popping by today!
