Dahlia Fold Card

Dilly Dally Boom~Di~Ada Dahlia Fold Card.

He He!! Just being silly.
This is my first attempt at a Dahlia fold card. I was rather pleased with the "flower" eventhough, I feel the rest needs some work. I will teach the Hostess Club how to make this flower using a Dahlia fold at our next meeting. I will post the workshop projects as I get them made.
Colors: Sunny Yellow & Olive
Paper: Boom Di Ada **All CTMH products.
I will post directions after the hostess workshop.
Have a great day!!

My First Sketch Challenge!!

This is my first sketch challenge. I found the sketch on Jen del Muro's Blog. ( I check her blog everyday. I used my brand new Copic markers which I bought so my artwork would look like the "big girls' work", but I have a lot to learn! They are very tricky! I try to blend and shade, but I have never had an art class and I'm truly just wingin' it. I also learned about Whipper Snapper stamps from my favorite blogs. Yes, I now want them all. Don't tell the CTMH friends, but the paper is from TAC. Where have my loyalties gone?? Oh well, it was fun to play with my new toys. I hope I can grow up to be an accomplished blogger of cards!?!? Does this make sense? HE HE

Hi Ya'll!!

Well, it's official, I've got a blog. Now what? Of course I have no idea what I'm doing. I think it will be fun to muddle through and learn though. I hope to figure out how to post pics and tips on how stamping and scrapbooking. But that will have to come later. I fave a few blogs I like to check everyday. They have inspired me to give this a try. I will post these links below.

Well, I plan to start back to work tomorrow. I don't have to officially report until August, but since I'm moving rooms, I need to unpack and organize. Whew!! I've got a mess up there. &
