Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my adventure into the blog world. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for about two years and finally ran out of excuses of why I couldn’t do it!

My first card is a Thank you card dedicated to all the wonderful blogs out there that has inspired me and helped me become a better papercrafter.  This card uses a stamp set by one of my favorite stamp companies, Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you come back.

    • Kathy, thank you. I actually have my own domain and didn’t go with a free site. I use WordPress which is available via my domain provider. I wouldn’t say this way is easy, but there is a lot of information out there.
