My First Post


My name is Melissa and I've been a blog "stalker" for about 2 1/2 years now and it's about time I actually started my own!  I've actually had this blog set up for a few months now, and just never posted, how sad is that.  So, today is as good a day as any to start this thing.  Haha. 

I've been making cards for about 8 years, it all started with my wedding invitations and quickly became an obsession!  I've sold cards on Etsy for almost 3 years and I think I do pretty well. 

My "goal" for 2011 is to actually submit my cards for publication and hopefully get picked, but if not, at least I can say I tried, right? 

Soooo, my first card that I'm going to post is for a chance to be on the design team for My Pink Stamper.


4 3/4 x 4 3/4 square card

Paper:  An old DCWV Spring Stack
Punch: Martha Stewart Lace Heart punch
Cricut Cartridge: Create a Critter 
Nestabilities rectangle

I think he's super cute and will make a great Valentine's Day card!  (And now that I'm looking at him again, it looks like there are marks on his face, but it's just the brown flecks that are in the lightest brown cardstock, I promise he's not dirty! haha) 

Have a great day!
