Here are my first crazy birds...stamps are by Tim Holtz...
I used a variety of techniques. I use tim holtz distressed ink for the birds and the green bird was markers..shading is my challenge....then for the presents most were done using pencils and gel pens. I shade better using pencils.
I did not glue anything down yet...work in progress. ..

Here we are in February. I recieved both kits The Paper Pumpkin and the Simon says Stamps kit.
I realized that I prefer the Simon says Stamp kit once again. The paper pumpkin had a cute kit....filled with hearts twine mini clothes pins and a cute stamp. I do love receiving the kits each month and I am a beginner I just want to lmake cardsI just wish it was only cards...
So I made a decision to let it go, the paper pumpkin kit, that is. I stuck with Simon says Stamps kit because I love everything in the kits this far...
Simon says Stamp kit SSS January 2016
Ok so I also ordered the Simon says Stamp kit. Really cute items in the kit.
This kit I did find it to be a bit more advanced for the beginner. I found myself wanting to put more embellishments on one card...hahaha..so I ended up with one card.
I also received the January 2016 kit for Paper Pumpkin. I didn't make the kit only because I didn't want a desktop calendar.
I was disappointed because I really wanted to make cards...and was not prepared for a desk calendar...that's ok, there were pretty cardstock that I will use for another project.

It was so exciting to receive my very first card making kit. I immediately dove in and started putting the cards together.
Even my son Grady made a card. ..i love his so much I can't ever give it away
Sitting here looking at a blank page trying to decide what I should write about or add to this new page.
Asking myself why I am starting a blog when I am so busy?
When will I have time to add to it and what will I say?
Then I realize this is where I can add my finished crafts, a place where I can share what I have made, what I am working on, and use this blog as a place to jot down my experiences through the process.
Another outlet to express myself freely.
This has the same feeling as when I look at a blank piece of paper before starting a new project, a new idea. You sit, you stare, you attempt to start, and you hesitate. ...but then something happens you put the pencil onto the paper and ideas begin to flow.
What an amazing feeling. ..I absolutely love to draw. I just haven't in a really long time. But this is a new year for beginnings
