Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog sketch

I recently made a set of notecards as a birthday present for my sister-in-law, and she absolutely loved them. My sister's birthday is coming up in July, so I've decided to make another batch for her. I followed the Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog sketch to make the first card and think it turned out lovely. 

I was particularly happy with how the stamped image turned out. It was actually too wide to fit in the circle, so I masked off the edges, and wonders of wonders, it worked!

Starting my new blog

I am completely illiterate when it comes to blogging. I had a blogger blog but was told I had to move to wordpress. I did that, and have never liked it because it's too cumbersome for me. I noticed other people were still using their blogger blogs, so I'm going to try and do the same. Thus, I am starting, yet again, another new blog.
