Happy Birthday

Today is my son's 40th birthday. It does not seem that long ago. As I look back over the years, I have been so blessed to have him as my son. He has had his struggles and at the same time, he has achieved so much. Happy birthday to a very special son.

Of course, I made him a birthday card that His dad and I will give him tomorrow. I used the Stampin' Up set called "Hit the Road." I used Prisma colored pencils to color the stamped image.The brown paper I used looks like leather.

My journey began several years ago. I first started making cards using my computer. Then I made cards featuring photos I had taken of my flowers. Around the fall of 2008, I made some cards using some scrap booking supplies I had purchased. I was hooked. My journey had begun. I fell in love with stamping. I loved finding new ideas and new techniques. I loved working with the beautiful paper that was available. I think that this is the first card I made using some of my tools that had spent many years hiding in my cabinet. I found the poem (don't remember where) and wanted to send it to someone who was really hurting at the time. The words were done on the computer.

This is the beginning of my blog. I have a lot to learn. I look forward to sharing the craft that I really enjoy.
