A great welcome to everyone who takes a few minutes to visit my blog, and hope you will return. I started off scrapbooking, but making cards soon overtook and I really enjoy seeing the end results. I enjoy blog hopping to see the wonderful creations from other crafters, there really are some talented, friendly people out there.

Victorian Ladies Birthday Card

Well here goes!  My very first posting on my new blog.  I finally decided to take the plunge, after encouragement from Eileen. I have been following Eileen's blog for several months now and must admit, look forward to taking a peek each evening to see what creation she has produced today!  Although I haven't spoken to you recently Eileen, many thanks for giving me the confidence to join the world of 'bloggers'.  I'm hoping lots of crafters will take a peek in to see my card creations.  I am off work now until 4th Jan so have plenty of time to spend making cards and hopefully (if they are good enough) posting them on my site.

My first posting is a Birthday card made yesterday for a friend. I used a cream card, stamping a Victorian lady matted onto a black background. A swirls stamp using black stazon ink pad, cream ribbon, flower and black gem stones.  A quick simple card for my first posting.  I hope anyone taking a peek will like it.

I will post another birthday card tomorrow that I am now going to make for my Sister's 60th Birthday.

Be back again soon.,  Hope many of you will join me.

Cheerio for now
