It's official...my very first blog card....

Well I have been desperate to get my new blog set up and my first card post and here we are.  Hopefully I can get a few more posted before my Caribbean cruise which I leave for next Friday and I cannot wait!

I have used Trip to the Park from Sugar Nellie.  I coloured the stamp with copics and this was a perfect colour combo as I have only recently started my collection of copics and have a few blue and green but will be buying more as I love them.  The papers are from First Edition - Up and Away which my good friend Fi gave me....she also helped with my blog and to link to the challenges below...I will get good at it. I layered the papers onto blue and green card, added some glitter and a couple of flowers.

The sugar Bowl - sketch/birthdays
Sweet Stampin - glitter
Anything goes - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
Stamp & Create - anything goes
Truly Madly Crafty - anything goes
Dream Valley - anything goes

Hi Karen and welcome to Blogland!
I have been here for 21 months and love every minute of it. I have only been a member of one DT with Fiona and that's fine by me.
Remember one thing...Your blog is exactly that...YOUR blog, you post when you want to not when you think others want you to, it should be fun and not a chore. Hope to see your lovely cards and if your first card is anything to go by it will be a pleasure to visit. Have a lovely cruise. Debbiexx
