My First Post


Hi and welcome to my blog.  I always said I would never do a blog, but as the saying goes "Never say never"!  With a bit of encouragement  from friends I've decided to start one. I'm still a little hesitant about the whole thing, so we will see.  I don't know how often I will post, but never the less I hope you find some inspiration when you peek into my cupboard.



I colored up this image on the weekend for a friends brothers birthday- who just happens to be a farmer.  The image is called "The Big Guy's Garden" from
Stamping Bella. I was so excited to see these 'guy' images, since I don't have very many.  I stamped him in Black Memento Ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I added the picket fence (Martha Stewart border punch) along the bottom to give it the kind of country/farm feeling.

The inspiration for the colors I used to color came from this Basic Grey Granola line.  I finished the card off by adding a couple of red brads and some twine.

Well that's it peeps for my first post.  Hope to see you again soon.
