And so I begin

For some strange and bizarre reason, several friends have requested that I start a blog. And so, I begin an adventure into "Blog Land".

With so many stamping blogs out there already, and so many TALENTED stampers, I am less than confident about what I can add but if nothing else, I will learn a new skill set setting up the blog.

And who knows? I might have fun. After all I can get on my stamping soapbox when the mood strikes. And I can share what I learn. And I can show off what I make. And... well, maybe this isn't such a strange idea.

This bear is an "award winner". It is one of two cards I made for a contest for VC_Rocks. The competition was tough but somehow I sneaked in the win. But I am proud of him - we were supposed to show the versatility of a stampset and most stampers don't put this baby on the beach. His sunglasses are from the Heart to Heart punch. Fun, huh?

Welcome to the world of blogging (not that I do it myself). I love to read blogs of people I know and keep up with them.

Well, sure hope you enjoy the blogging world. I'm scared right now that it will take too much of my time. But can't wait to sign up for your updates, if you have that link on here yet.
