Welcome to my new blog

Hi everyone.  I have just joined Stampin Up - in fact I'm still waiting for my Starter Kit to arrive (should arrive this week).  The wonderful Debbie Pamment (my upline) suggested I set up a blog once I become a demonstrator, so please bear with me.  It's strange, I actually thought I was quite computer literate, but this blog stuff takes a little bit of getting used to.

I have had a lot of fun stamping over the last month, this is a birthday card and pillow box I made for my friend's little boy's 3rd birthday party.  The stamp is called Party Dragon (a LeLo Design stamp), the Happy Birthday stamp is a Daisy Bucket Design stamp.  This was also my first attempt at watercolouring, I used Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss (as apart from Basic Grey and Black they were the only inks I had).  I was really pleased with the result.

I have also made a Half Milk Carton from a tutorial I got from Becky Roberts for a friend's Bridal Shower, which I will post soon.  It is a great tutorial and will get a lot of use I've even made a Christmas set which I will also post soon (well as soon as I get my next Stampin Up order - waiting on some Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon to finish it off).
