The Birth of a Blog

Hello, blog world!

This is my first ever blog post!  I am also on Pinterest, but have never written a blog before.  Hopefully, someone out there in the crafting world will find my blog and gain some enjoyment from it.

I have been a scrapbooker for the past 10 years or so, but I only recently have begun to make cards as well.  A few months ago, I started following some [okay, lots] of crafty blogs out there to find inspiration for myself.  I often have trouble deciding where to begin on a project so I go web diving for ideas.

I have also attempted to enter some card making contests via the web and blogging world, and I have decided that it would be much easier to do if I had my own blog.  Which has led me to this......Hippymom Creations!

So here is my first ever blog posted card.....



I am submitting this card for the Lawnscaping Challenge #52:


So I created a cute little scene using my Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest stamps.  I love all of Lawn Fawns little critters!  They are so adorable, and they make me happy.  :)  I used a Spellbinders Scalloped Circles die to cut my stamping paper, and I inked the sky and "grass" with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  Since I was using regular water based markers to color my critters, I used Ranger Archival Ink to stamp all the images and sentiment.  The sentiment, rainbow and sun are from Lil' Inker Designs Sunshine Dies & Sun Sentiment Stamp Set.  I used a variety of paper scraps from different brands to create this card.  Oh!  I almost forgot...the twine is from Doodlebug's Baby Boy Doodle Twine.

Obviously, I am new to blogging and I'm still learning how to add images and links to my blog.  Hopefully, everything will look okay once I click Publish.  If anyone has any input for me feel free to leave a comment.

I will attempt to take better pictures of my work in the future.  :)  I was in a hurry and didn't have time to set up my hubby's photo booth.  Maybe I'll do a post some time to share the photo booth with my readers.  {That's optimism for you....assuming that I'll have some readers.  LOL}

Well, if you have read this post, let me say "Thank you!"  And I hope you'll stop back by for future posts!

Bye!
