Here it is!! My first blog post ever!! I have decided to jump in with both feet with a very big motivator, as you see in my blog title … I WANT TO WIN A*MUSE*A*PALOOZA!!! For those of you that don’t know, A Muse is an amazing stamp company out of Seattle. I had the honor and privledge of visiting the store and meeting the owner, Linda, in March. More on that later – I’m envisioning a post entitled “Moments that changed my life.” Anyway – A Muse is looking for their number one fan (ME!) through a contest that I will have a much better chance of winning if I have a blog! So here I go – blogging! I hope that you all will enjoy my little musings on life, with a heavy emphasis on stamping! We will learn as we go – see what works and what doesn’t! I will warn you all – I am not really very computer literate! I’m learning, but the curve may move really slowly, so bear with me!
This card was made with Calamity Jane from A Muse! I just love this stamp (and her boyfriend, Billy the Kid) – comes from that part of me that also thinks Sam Elliot is one of the sexiest men alive! The paisley background is from Stampin’ Up! (you can get that from me!) – stamped with whisper white and embossed with white EP. Colors are Rose Red, Ballet Blue and Whisper White with black stitched ribbon from May Arts (thanks to Jody!). And that is one of the infamous Marvy scalloped punches – carried 5 of those bad boys back in my suitcase with me from Seattle!!
