The official 1st post

Wow!  I  never imagined when my daughter and daughter-in-law brought home 3 gigantic totes filled with stamping stuff that I would someday be blogging.  Here it is almost 2 years since that fateful day and the first post on my blog is here.  (just to let you know, i am scared and excited at the same time.  what have i gotten myself into)

Where to start.....

A dear friend had started making cards and seemed to be having a ball.  Well of course I wanted to try my hand at card making also.  So I got my stamps out, learned how to emboss, found card ideas on various web pages and took off.  Here is one of my very first cards.
Boy howdy!  I was soooo pleased with myself.  Sure there are a few oops, but I actually made a card.  My poor daughters, they got dragged to garage sales, thrift stores and craft stores to find more stamps constantly.  The collection of stamps grew.  But wait,  I can cut out shapes and put pretties (which Jana now knows are called embellishments) on my cards.   Off I go to search out rhinestones, ribbon, buttons, and any item that I think might work on a card.   WHOA.....tell them about the paper.  Well the paper story will have to wait until tomorrow.  So for now...

Bright blessings, Jana
