Okay... let me start by saying thank you, for stopping by, and for putting up with me for a test ... no you won't be graded.
As you read this, I am about to write my very first post using the New Blogger - so far so good! I'm sharing a card made for the September CAS Christmas Challenge - now, here comes the difficult part: linking this text with the challenge post! aha! it worked!
and so did pasting their graphic!! Yay!
I sifted through my [three] containers of Christmas sets and was thrilled to find so many Christmas tree options ... don't think that means I won't be tempted to buy more! Today, I'm using a Penny Black cling stamp called Christmas Glow. Here are all the supplies I needed to complete my card: [this is where I insert a photo - fingers crossed]
Voila!!! it arrived perfectly!
I stamped my tree on a 5x7" piece of Tim Holtz
water color card stock, using the inks above.
Then, because I felt it needed a little something, I
whacked off the left edge, die cut the oval, then added back the slice I'd removed - after slicing off a wee bit more.
Okay, I'm getting there... but something else was off.
aha! It needed a nice red container, instead of the
navy I'd originally used. It was easy, stamped it on a scrap, then fussy cut it, and glued it over the top!
I do wish my camera could have captured the sparkle of the
Diamond Stickles I applied to the lights ...
Well. it seems I have conquered my fears ... even though, now that I look at it, I may have failed miserably on the CAS part of the challenge! lol how many times have I done that?
Thanks for the support I've been given by a few blogging friends who nipped that new blogger in the bud from the get-go! one final test ... getting my card to the CAS Christmas gallery! oh boy... here goes nothing...
