I took the plunge!

After a lot of friends and family telling me I needed to join the blog world, I finally did it. What better way to join then starting off with a challenge. I may be new to the whole "blog land" world. However I am NO stranger to crafting. I have been crafting for well over 20years. I also am an avid hoarder of all paper crafting items. Okay enough about me, lets get to the first card. I hope I do this right.
I have been a long time follower of Paper Smooches and love everything about them. Here is my card for their Sparks Challenge Polka Dots. I used the Falling for You, and the new I heart art stamp set.
As you can see I ran with the Polka Dot theme. The little monster is in tiny polka dots, the paint, and all the colors too. I heat embossed the splatter from I heart art stamp to give it a glossy feel. 

I hope you like it thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time. 


  1. CONGRATS on starting your blog! I just started mine in January, and I think you are going to love being a blogger *wink*. It's really a ton of fun, especially, playing along with the challenges! Speaking of which, your card is just delightful - a perfect choice for entering blog land!!!

  2. Welcome to blogworld Anna! I'm also only a recent arrival (September) and am still exploring and discovering ... I love it ... hope you'll love it too! This is stunning first blogged card, cute image and such a creative set of splodgy dots! Anita in France :)

  4. Congrats to you, Anna, for taking the big step! I'm about to do so later today (I hope). My launch, similar to yours, is due to my growing 'love' for PS products/challenges) Shannon, who commented above, has been an incredible inspiration, as well, from encouraging me to blog, as well as showcasing amazing PS-focused cards. I'm a new-comer to this 'sport,' so my offerings won't be nearly as amazing as yours, which leads me to exclain: Your little monster is ADORABLE!! As Cute, clever and creative!! Looking forward to seeing more of your talents, now that you've entered the blogosphere! Thank you for sharing.

  5. How cute! Totally love this! And welcome to blog land. :)
