The first day of my Sentiment-al Journey =]

You should know that this blog was not my idea - well, kind of my idea. 

I was encouraged by a great designer in our world of cards 'across the pond' who inspires me daily [and thousands of others] to create.  Start a blog! says she. Not only to share my creations, but also to give myself a voice.  You may be sorry about that voice thing... I am youngest of nine and LOVE to be heard!

Debby Hughes, you had me at [your first] hello [card]. =]

Here is an example of what you'll see here.  I [think] I have a sense of humor and often try to incorporate a little tongue-in-cheeky business into my cards.  Thus:


Inside sentiment:  "Sorry!! - I didn't think you caught my wave!!!"

I've been creating cards for the fam for a few years now.  Recently, I started to submit to challenges as I'm drawn to the world of CAS.  My first win happened this month on CASology!!  You cannot imagine my surprise, joy, and complete and utter fear when asked to be a Guest Designer!!  What a thrill - many thanks to Melissa Chipperfield.

So, if you so happen to be in my blog neighborhood... stop by, have a coffee, and hopefully a laugh =]

I like cream and sugar in my coffee....but truth be told I would rather have tea.
Welcome to BlogLand ! I wish you many years of happiness and creativity !
Love the card and your sense of humor.
I blog at Life@RuffHaven.... it's a little bit of everything. I enjoyed the JingleBelles Christmas Card challenges but I have a hard time posting my creations. Too many hobbies ...not enough time.
