Welcome to My Blog

I am a stalker of the Papertrey Ink forums. I tend to be more of a lurker than poster although I have been trying to remedy that. There has been much talk on the forums about starting a blog for the new year. I have been hesitant like many of the other forum members. What would I say? Would anyone read or like me? Are my cards good enough? All of these thoughts have been running through my head. Well, I decided to start a blog for the heck of it. Who knows how often I will post or what in the world I will have to say. To start this post I am including a card I made a while back that isn't completely copied. I am the queen of CASE-ing. Hopefully starting this blog will slowly change that. Excuse my poor photo skills. I haven't quite perfected the picture taking! If anyone is viewing, I hope you enjoy...



Supplies: All PTI unless otherwise stated

Stamps: Journaling Lines, Friends 'Til the End
Paper: White, Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, SU! Really Rust (Terracota wasn't out yet)
Ink: Aqua Mist (old formula that you can barely see), Smokey Shadow, SU! Really Rust
Misc: Scallop punch, twine, button

  17. Hi Tammy, Sophia is such a cutie! I have a long-haired Chihuahua whose name is Apollo. I wish I could get a lovely photo like yours but most of the shots are with his eyes half closed! Nothing I have captures the cuteness of him like you've done with yours! :o)
