Hello Peeps!!

LOL... I've always wanted to say that! Well what a morning I've had. First thing was to check my blog to make sure it wasn't a dream (remember Pammie in the shower???!!!) and sure enough it was there! AND I had 1 follower...thanks Trace (get a picture on there sis)...much to the disappointment of my bff Karen as she wanted to be my first lol. Definitely think sitting in a car colouring on the pretext of watching Ben play cricket was your downfall lol. Anywho, I got pretty excited when I saw my viewing counter...21!!!! Wow...but then I realized that I probably accounted for 90% of the viewing LOL. Well, I did HAVE to check didn't I.

So then I checked my emails and boy oh boy...I got one that I've been waiting a couple of weeks for and did I squeal or what!!! Unfortunately I can't share it with you just now but hopefully in the very near future all will be revealed : ) Sorry for the tease.

I got to thinking (and panicking) yesterday what have I set myself up for??? I read back my first post and it was the bit about inspiration...will I inspire? What will I put on my blog? What on earth have I done? So I've been trawling through my cards trying to decide which one if any will inspire anyone and this is the one I came up with. I saw the sketch somewhere but can't remember where (in future I'll make sure to take note). The card is for my nephew's birthday on Sunday. I really dislike making male cards (so quite ironic my first post is a male card lol) and refuse orders for them. I only make them for family and even then I'm stressed out of my head. The cs is Bazzill and the pp is from MME's Wild Asparagus range which I got from my bf Fee at The Papercraft Company. (When I figure it out I'll put a link on the side). The calendar stamps are Stampin' Up and consist of 3 sets..the months, the calendar, and the numbers. The 21 and circular sentiment are from JustRite Stampers. And that's it! What do you think?

I'm off to finish some wedding cards...catcha later. x

Fab card Kerry. It is always so difficult to do male cards but this one is really nice.
