First Challenge

I did my first sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers this week....and my first upload on that site as well. And boy, did I find it challenging. It took me most of the morning to make this card and most of the evening to upload the card.

I tried using two pieces of designer paper but it just didn't seem to look that great. So I decided to stamp on the Old Olive card stock instead. The piece of dp that I did use is a little darker in real life. I also sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

It isn't my favorite card that I've made but I thought I'd post my first challenge on my new blog :)

I can't believe that I am doing this. I am not computer savvy at all! And now I am going to attempt this blogging thing. I've been viewing other people's blogs (mostly card making ones) for a couple of months now and have decided to try one of my own. I think I must be crazy!

One of the reasons I'd like to blog is to try to keep a record of some the projects, cards and scrap booking, that I do. And maybe in the process someone will have a look and leave a comment or two.....maybe.

We'll see how it goes and how long it will take me to figure things out. OK, I'm going to click on Publish and see how it looks.... . Wait, I just saw the Preview "button".... See, this will take me some time to figure things out.
