When pigs fly...

Here I am, my first "official" post. Yes, I said many times I would never ever have a blog. Many people will be thinking (or saying) "Ha!! I knew she'd have one eventually". Well, the pigs must have been flying overhead today, because I'd been thinking about it for a while......contemplating......weighing the pros & cons.....do I have the time.....I could post my design team stuff in another place other than SCS.....all that work.....people would (hopefully) leave comments.....

In the end I couldn't resist. I always did have to be like everyone else!!

I started stamping about 2 1/2 years ago. I tried to make my mom a Christmas card. She still has it. I never did take a picture of it (ick) but here is the very first card I uploaded to SCS (Splitcoast Stampers, THE best stamping website out there!)



Ok, not bad. I found SCS January 1, 2006 & I finally started a gallery that March. So I'd only been stamping for about 3 months. Here's the card I posted to my gallery today, almost 2 1/2 years later....


I hope I'm improving as time goes on!! I have learned *everything* I know on SCS, it's a great site with great forums & a great gallery. My only complaint is that I never get anything else done!!!!

Michelle this looks terrific. I don't have a blog so I am hoping it will let me post this comment. I love that you showed your first card ever. I still have my first swap card. Yuck. Good luck in this new adventure. I think it looks fantastic. Oh the places you will go. I think your pig is flying......

I think your blog will be a big hit! It's so funny you posted your first card, because when I read how you weren't sure about starting a blog I just had to check out your gallery! Your artistic talent is amazing, and I loved the difference between your fisrt card and your last. Can't wait to see what you've got coming. I've added your blog to my favs to check every morning!
