What I hope to acheive

I have recently discovered the amazing hobby, stamping and card making. And as I do with most things in life, I have grabbed it with both hands and want to run with it. Very fast & furiously!! I have spent hours on-line finding blogs of other amazing ladies who stamp, and wow, it has been really inspirational. I would like to try and do the same thing with my blog, but differently of course, because I don't have access to all the amazing stamps and products that the overseas ladies do. I want to try and create a South African based stamping site, where South African ladies can (hopefully), gain a bit of inspiration from me, and I can make friends with local ladies who stamp.

My dream would be to be chosen to be on a design team, but I think I am getting ahead of myself!

I'll start by posting the Mothers Day cards I made for my sister, gran & aunt. The flowers were stamped using the Hero Arts "Fashion Blooms" stamps. I used a polka dot trim, which I downloaded from the 2 Peas site and did a bit of embossing on each.

I will try and work on my blog a bit more over the weekend. See you soon

OMG - these cards are so cute! I saw your comment on Mish's site and am also new to stamping and blogging - you are certainly off to a great start! (I also just bought a cuttlebug and some nestabilities - can't wait to try them this coming weekend!)
Have a great week!
